Water drive this weekend to help residents of Flint, MI

Area residents are conducting a multi-location water drive this weekend to help residents of Flint, Michigan. That city’s water supply has been deemed unsafe.

Organizers say that they have already collected nearly 200 gallons of water. They hope to add to that total significantly with the water drive that will take place this Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can drop off your donation of sealed containers of water at the following locations:

Casey’s General Store – State Street and Gladstone Avenue in Columbus;
Noble’s Barbershop – Fifth Street and Washington Street in Columbus;
Hilton Garden Inn – US 31 North in Taylorsville

While volunteers will be on hand to take water donations, event organizers say that they are still in need of a number of supplies. These include: pallets, shrinkwrap and handheld palletjacks. If you are able to help with these supplies, you are asked to contact Phillip Beardman London or Jeremy Littiken, via Facebook. Otherwise, you are encouraged to do what you can by dropping off your water donation this Saturday.
