More residents of Flint will start the New Year off with clean, safe drinking water thanks to the The University of Olivet Black Student Union (BSU). Members of the BSU recently hosted a water drive for the city, which is currently facing a major water crisis due to lead contamination.

Many student organizations, Greek societies and employees pitched in to donate bottled water and filtering systems to the Flint community.

“The BSU students delivered more than 3,200 bottles of water to Dozier Memorial CME Church in Flint to help those dealing with contaminated water,” said Linda Logan, Ph.D., vice president and dean for student life. “The church plans to distribute the water to Genesee STEM Academy, which serves elementary school students in the area.”
