Neighbors First - Water for Flint

Trust. Trust has been broken and as a community church, West Court Street Church of God has been a staple in the community. Through our Neighbors First campaign we have intentionally established a position of understanding that our neighbor literally come first. Since the beginning of the crisis in Flint, West Court Church has been involved in distributing water - either through our own efforts or by partnering with the state to host a Point of Distribution. 

We have decided to continue our efforts. Money has slowed down and $50,000 will supply a year long effort to distribute water. No funds are used for payroll, distribution or transportation, or for equipment rental - every dollar through this campaign will be used for purchase of water. Along with our many other donors, the funds from this campaign will solidify our efforts and will position West Court Church to continue to be an organization that can be trusted!

It is our estimate that the continuing project to replace water lines will need another year before it is completed. That’s why our campaign is designed for a year’s worth. Monthly estimates for distribution range between $4-6,000 to distribute 2-4 cases of water to upwards of 400-500 families during our weekly distribution that is held on Saturdays 12-3PM at our location in Flint. 2920 West Court Street. That location is centered around 5,154 homes that are within a one-mile radius.

Amongst this and other things, our church is also a polling site and a familiar landmark for our community. We have worked hard to make sure we do distribution the best way possible and would love to have you or your organization not only donating but volunteering. Contact our office for details: (810) 238-2631 or email at contact@westcourtchurch.org

Thank you for considering this campaign!
