Flint Water Task Force

Western Michigan Helping Flint!

Flint is in desperate need of help. As they are fading out of the news, help is also fading. Help us get clean water to Flint. One pallet of water has about 1920 bottles of water and cost about 164 dollars. We as a group of MSW (Masters of Social Work) students were compelled to assist Flint during this crisis. Help us, help Flint. You can assist through make donations of cases of water, or monetary donations so that we can purchase water or other needs to assist the citizens of Flint.

Donations

Cases of water and wet wipes can be dropped of to the College of Health and Human Services (East Campus of WMU) room 4413 and monetary donations can be made out to MSWSO (please write "WTF" on the memo line of checks).

These checks can also be dropped off to room 4413 or mailed to 1903 West Michigan Ave, Attn: Geoff Stevens, Kalamazoo MI 49008-5354.

Given space limitations, monetary donations are preferred but water donations are welcome. If you have any questions please contact wmuflintwathertaskforce@gmail.com.

What we've done

We have partnered with Vernon Chapel church in Flint to distribute water directly to the people who need it most - people who don't live near Flint's water distribution centers and people who don't have cars and who just can't afford to travel to distribution centers.

To date, we have delivered more than 30,000 bottles of water to the most underserved people in the city of Flint.
