Maryland to Flint Water Drive

On February 13, 2016, the MD to Flint Water Drive collected, transported, and helped distribute some 33 hundred cases of water in Flint Michigan. Not to include the several hundred 1 gallon jugs. That equates to over 51 pallets of water. Machinery only got introduced when we got to Flint, but even there most of the unloading and staging was done by hand. We delivered the water and the people of Flint received our donations with gladness. Every water bottle and financial donation collected in MD had a purpose and were collected and used with integrity. All the water brought to Flint from MD delivered was gone by that evening. The MD to Flint Water Drive initiative plans to deliver water quarterly. The need for fresh clean and abundant water is still very strong for the residents of Flint.
