Two eighth-grade students are taking action to help the residents of Flint, Michigan, whose water contamination crisis is getting nationwide attention. They invite other Middle School students and families to join them in donating and gathering goods to send to Michigan.

Consider donating by grade:

Grade 6 –  Light non-perishables (pasta, mac & cheese) which can be easily and inexpensively shipped

Grade 7 – water filters (ie: Britta) and/or water testing kits (which can be found at Home Depot, Lowes, Amazon.com and other retailers)

Grade 8 – Small monetary donations for the purchase of goods and to help pay for shipping.
