We are Thankful for our Water Donors

We offer our sincerest thanks to all the people and congregations below who have donated to Woodside's water relief efforts here in Flint. Gifts as of July 2017 have exceeded $99,000. With these gifts, we have funded 3 safe water stations in the community (which will become even more vital as the state closes bottled water distribution sites by the end of summer); provided water bill support to nearly 200 families, to prevent shut-offs or tax lien foreclosure; provided dozens of filters and cartridges for household use; underwritten training for 3 formerly incarcerated men seeking industrial (and lead-abatement) certification; and arranged plumbing work in a couple of most urgent cases. Additionally, with your gifts to UCC Disaster Relief Fund, we were also able to help acquire a grant for our local partner organization, GCHLC, so that Spanish-speaking people in the community could have an interpreter for medical visits. For more detail on these projects, go here. 
More than 90 percent of these gifts has been distributed. You can continue to support this community's crisis management (recovery is still a long way off, apparently), by clicking on the donation link at the bottom of our home page.
