Church exhausts $50,000 to keep water flowing in Flint

It’s been just over three weeks since Woodside Church in Flint, Mich., offered to pay water bills for neighbors in need, and the church’s $50,000 fund is already tapped out. 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. Click here to read the full UCC News story.
