National organization to provide water relief to Flint residents and host panel discussion during the 6th Annual Flint Water Festival

National Clean Water Collective (NCWC) is thrilled to kick off the Flint Water Festival with a water giveaway from 3-6 p.m. on July 2 and to host a panel discussion from 4-5 p.m. on July 4  at Berston Field House.

Flint residents that are still negatively impacted by the Flint Water Crisis and do not have access to clean drinking water are invited to pick up water during the drive-through water distribution sponsored by the National Clean Water Collective. The premium water boxes to be distributed, WS Darley & Co. Safe Water Box, containing 2.64 gallons of water, use 80% less plastic than bottled water, have a three-year shelf life and are a recyclable solution, protected from light, air and bacterial contamination. The boxes, sponsored by Napoli Shkolnik and WS Darley, can be upcycled to create mini gardens.

The first 100 residents to receive boxed water will also receive a packet of organic seeds courtesy of Edible Flint to help start their own mini garden. Fifty guests will receive a special goody bag.

Residents are invited to participate in a panel discussion that will highlight up-to-date information about the Flint Water Crisis, provide updates for the Flint Water Lawsuit and inform the public about NCWC’s continuous efforts to provide clean water to the Flint community. Panelists include: Michael Harris (Flint Community Lab), Reginald Davidson, Claudia Perkins, Steve Christiansen (lead engineer of Ozotech Inc.), Virginia Nolan, Calvin McQueen and NCWC Youth Brand Ambassador Antonio Sweeney.
