Event Name: Flint Water Crisis

THE STORY:

By now, we all are most likely aware of the water crisis inflicting the residents of Flint, Michigan. For those that haven’t, a little bit of history on the issue effecting the community of 100,000 people, largely minority and poor, who are unable to drink, clean or bathe from their water supply:

For decades, Flint bought its water from Detroit. It was piped from Lake Huron, with anti-corrosion chemicals added along the way. But in early 2014, with the city under the control of an emergency manager appointed by Governor Rick Snyder, officials switched to Flint River water in a bid to save money. The state, however, did not ensure that corrosion-control additives were part of the new water supply. At first insisted they stated that they had taken proper safety steps, then privately acknowledged to federal officials they hadn’t, then publicly explained that they had misunderstood the required protocol for protecting the public’s health. And that has allowed rust, iron and, most dangerous, lead from aging pipes to flow into residents’ homes.

What we at NY Cares About Flint are striving to do is privately procure water and filtration equipment here in New York City and on the day of February 19th, drive these needed materials to Flint, Michigan, where we will deliver and assist The Red Cross and community organizations in dispersing them.

Any amount of water or monetary assistance helps, as water is not that expensive to purchase. 100% of all donations will go to the effort. Thank You for your help, Devon Smith
