Spartanburg Regional Foundation Contributes to the
SC School for the Deaf and the Blind’s Healthy School Initiative

SPARTANBURG, SC –Spartanburg Regional Foundation is helping the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind expand its Healthy School Initiative through a recent grant award.

The grant provides funds for two Clorox Total 360 Systems to clean and sanitize classrooms, nursing stations, and buses. The school’s maintenance department tried a 360 System earlier this year and found it to be effective in cleaning multiple surfaces beyond the department’s usual deep cleaning. The system can be used to spray desks, beds, walls, floors, and bus seats – virtually any surface that could potentially carry germs.

“The Spartanburg Regional Foundation has been a long-time partner in health with the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind,” said Ann Akerman, chief executive officer of the school’s foundation. “We are so thankful for their commitment to the health of the Spartanburg community and the surrounding area including our students.”

The SC School for the Deaf and the Blind is the state’s specialized school for students who are deaf or blind. It offers pre-kindergarten - grade12 educational programs on its main campus in Spartanburg and specialized vision and hearing services in school districts and homes throughout the state.  Visit www.scsdb.org for more information.

The SC School for the Deaf and the Blind Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to securing resources that enable the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind to achieve its mission and goals. For more information, visit www.scsdbfoundation.org or call 864-577-7583.
