The Flint water disaster made national headlines, and efforts to fix the problems are underway. But the crisis is far from over. Replacing the city's water lines to guarantee safe, clean drinking water is years away. Meanwhile, thousands of families who are suffering from the effects of lead poisoning still need our help.
Though the media has moved on, the people of Flint remain, and your support matters as much today as it did a year ago. Let’s not forget about Flint. Please join Lifetime and the cast of the new movie FLINT— Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Betsy Brandt and Marin Ireland — in helping the people of Flint with short-term support and ongoing medical care for the children and families affected. Your continued support is vital. Every drop counts.
The funds donated through this effort will go to the Flint Water Fund through United Way of Genesee County (www.unitedwaygenesee.org/flintwaterfund) which helps support short-term needs, including the purchase of filters, bottled water, emergency support services.
