School budget cuts force elimination of paper products
March 9, 2009
ORLANDO, FL — Facing a budget shortfall and needing to make some drastic cuts, one Central Florida school decided to nix paper products, according to WTVY-TV.
Orange County Middle School is not going the usual route of outsourcing custodial services or not ordering new textbooks; rather, they are cutting costs by no longer supplying toilet paper and paper towels in restrooms, the story stated.
After the news reached the greater Orlando area, compassion took a hold and the community came to the rescue, the story noted.
Several surrounding schools have pooled their resources together to provide the much needed supplies, the story added.
According to the story, local churches are also taking the initiative and providing the school with much-needed donations.
