Church exhausts $50,000 to keep Flint neighbors’ water flowing

Contributions from churches across the United States and an $8,500 grant from UCC Disaster Ministries to the Genesee County Hispanic Latino Collaborative (GCHLC), which is housed in the church, will help more people prevent water shutoffs at home – and continue to provide free filtered water for those whose water at home is still not safe to use.
