SAN ANTONIO – In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, toilet paper shortages have become a problem as communities flock to stores to stack up on household essentials.

SeaWorld San Antonio received a call from members of the First Class Petty Officers Association at Fort Sam Houston about their shortage. The amusement park assisted by donating toilet paper to help almost 1,000 students enrolled in medical training.

SeaWorld employees and military members joined forces on Saturday morning to load 45 cases, totaling more than 500 jumbo sized rolls, which were distributed to Navy medical trainees.

San Antonio businesses and nonprofits united in order to aid students studying to be medical corpsmen, and who will eventually be deployed around the world.
