Helping in Flint, One Shower At A Time
With its public water contaminated with dangerous levels of lead, low-income Flint families are struggling to make sure they have clean water to drink, AND to bathe in. Some families are traveling to relatives’ or friends’ homes outside of Flint to take a shower in water that is safe. To help these families, Family-to-Family is coordinating a “bath-pack” drive, hoping to provide travel-ready packages of basic personal care items.
