Here’s Where Flint Residents Can Still Pick Up Bottled Water
The state may have shut down the distribution sites, but local churches and organizations are stepping up instead.
There are still 12,000 residents in the city of Flint who have not yet had their pipes replaced, yet the state claims that the water is fine and have shut down all of the water distribution sites permanently.
WNEM TV-5 is holding a water drive today and tomorrow at Kroger locations today and tomorrow. Info below:
Per usual, leave it to Flintstones to help each other out. The following churches and organizations are distributing bottled water, along with times and dates:
