The United Way of Genesee County has set up this fund for the purchase of filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention efforts. 100% of the fund is used for these projects and no Administrative Fee is assessed.
The UWGC has sourced more than 11,000 filters systems and 5,000 replacement filters, ongoing sources of bottled water to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan and also supports a dedicated driver for daily distribution.
After the short-term need of Flint residents has been met, any remaining funds will be directed to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. This fund will provide aid to children and families with interventions that support positive health outcomes.
If you know of a City of Flint resident looking for assistance, please have them call 2-1-1 or visit mi211.org.
