SeaWorld donates toilet paper to medical trainees at Ft. Sam Houston

SeaWorld is closed through the end of the month

SAN ANTONIO – SeaWorld San Antonio donated its supply of toilet paper Saturday to Navy medical trainees stationed at Ft. Sam Houston.

Members of the Navy First Class Petty Officers Association, a non-federal, non-profit group that advocates on behalf of enlisted sailors, reached out to SeaWorld officials and requested the donation for 1,000 Navy medical trainees in need of supplies. The military students are restricted to the base due to the new coronavirus pandemic and were experiencing a shortage.

SeaWorld San Antonio donated 45 cases, about 500 jumbo-sized rolls, of toilet paper.

“The cry for help came via a connected network of San Antonio businesses and non-profit organizations uniting in an attempt to help the students studying to be medical corpsmen, and who will eventually be deployed around the world,” SeaWorld said in a news release.

All SeaWorld theme parks temporarily closed on March 16 and will stay closed at least through the end of the month.
