Members of Black greek fraternities and sororities are stepping up nationally to save the lives of our fellow citizens in Flint, Michigan who are being poisoned by their city’s tap water. This situation is so bad that President Obama has declared a state of emergency in response to the water crisis in Flint.
We have set up this GoFundMe to fund the United Way of Genesee County’s purchase of filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention efforts to the residents of Flint. 100% of the donation is will be used for these projects and no Administrative Fee will be assessed in the money we are directly giving to their cause.
The United Way of Genesee County has already sourced more than 11,000 filter systems and 5,000 replacement filters. Donations also support a dedicated driver for daily distribution. After much research, we have decided that donating to them is the best way to make our money count.
We urge members of the Black Greek community to spend whatever you can by giving to this fund. Flint is the 8th largest city in the United States when it comes to percentage of African Americans and we find it our duty as members of the Black Greek community to let them know that we are there for them.
Please SHARE this fundraiser with your chapter and as many members of Black fraternities and sororities as possible. When you donate please include the name of your org in the comment section so that we can tell where we are getting the most donations from.
Let’s make an impact!
