Lee County --  While temperatures continue to heat up in the afternoon, a Lee County business made a donation today to help keep school kids cool.

We first told you during the heat wave that Lee County Schools waived its food restriction on buses to allow students a bottle of water to keep them cool on the ride home.

Friday, the Express Lane on Highway 19 donated 15 cases of water to the school for students. Manager Gina Brown said many students stop at the store on their way to and from schools, and it's just a way to give back.

"We get back whatever we give one way or another, pay it forward that's what we do, it's like cheers everybody, knows everybody here," said Brown.

Lee County schools stopped handing out water to the students last week, but have allowed students to bring their own supply. They plan to save the water for another hot day.
