NEWARK - As the lead contamination situation in Newark Public Schools continues to unfold, one local business is hoping to make a difference.

Newark Mayor Ras Baraka asked the city’s citizens to donate two cases of bottle water to help the students in the affected schools.

One business decided to go even further. Harness Homes Group, a real estate firm, donated five pallets of bottled water to the school district Thursday.

This equates to about several hundred cases of water.
