How to help #FlintWaterCrisis

Collect money for disaster response. We are continuing to provide safe drinking and cooking water through our two local parishes, St. Andrew’s and St. Paul’s, as well as through Episcopal-affiliated service organizations Christ Enrichment Center, Crossover Downtown Outreach Ministries, and the St. Andrew’s Soup Kitchen.

But there is an emerging gap in resources that we need to address. Access to healthy, iron-rich foods that aid in lead removal is extremely limited in Flint, much of which is characterized as a food desert.

By giving financially to the disaster response, you help us broaden the impact of your gift as we continue to provide safe water by the pallet as well as the components of a fresh, nutritious diet that will combat the effects of lead poisoning in our city’s children.

To donate, send checks marked “Water Relief” to:
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
711 S Saginaw Street
Flint, MI 48502
