Safe Water For Flint
"Free Flint, Save Kids' Futures"
My name is Justin Powell and I am in 5S at the Shipley School
In Flint, Michigan the water has been contaminated by lead because the Mayor switched the water source from the Great Lakes of Michigan to the Flint River to save money. As a result, many people are sick and 10 people have died from lead poisoning. To help the people of Flint, Michigan, I raised $113 by saving my Christmas money and doing a variety of chores (doing the dishes, taking out the trash and shoveling 2 feet of snow). With the $113 I raised, I was able to buy and donate 22 cases of water as a part of the Bottled Water Drive sponsored by the Rhema Worship Center. If you would like to help go to unitedwaygenesee.org.
