Students at DSHA organize bottled water drive Wednesday to benefit Flint

On Wednesday, Milwaukee area residents can drop off donated bottled water or money to help benefit residents of Flint, Michigan who are impacted by the ongoing water crisis in that city, Alderman Jim Bohl said.

Divine Savior Holy Angels High School students who are members of the Sisters of Culture Club will be collecting donations throughout the day, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Parking will be available at the main entrance to the school, which will serve as the drop-off site. Donations will then be forwarded to the Flint-based St. Vincent de Paul Society meal program for distribution to residents in need.

The water drive is made possible in partnership with local businesses that include the Milwaukee Bucks, Gee’s Clippers, Starbucks, Dasani Water, Yo Mama! Frozen Yogurt, Stone Creek Coffee Roasters, Costco, Potbelly Sandwich Works and Cardinal Stritch University.

Donations can only be accepted in the form of sealed jugs of water, cases of sealed water bottles, cash or checks made out to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. For questions or more information, contact Kimberly Gardner at (414) 616-2815.
