Veterans at HVAF collect water for residents of Flint, Michigan
A wide range of groups are currently collecting or helping to bring water to needy residents in Flint, Michigan where100,000 residents have no clean drinking water due to lead-contamination. Veterans in HVAF’s Vet2Vet group have teamed up with Dollar General #6874 to collect bottled water.Vet to Vet is a support group that meets weekly to plan community service projects as well as talk about the day-to-day challenges in their lives.
“It’s humbling to see these veterans who have very little in materialistic things want to help a fellow American in need,” says James Miller, Vet2Vet Peer Mentor and Air Force veteran.
The group plans to collect a van full and then deliver it to a partnering agency who will then drive the water donation to Michigan.
