As 2018 comes to a close, we would like to take the opportunity to look back on some of the accomplishments we have made together, and thank those who helped us along the way.
Flint Water Distributions In the Spring of 2018, the State of Michigan pulled funding for water distributions in Flint, Michigan. This comes after the government determined that the water was safe to drink after a lead crisis was identified in the water supply back in 2014. Pack Your Back and Mari Copeny teamed up to continue assisting the residents of Flint in getting clean drinking water as residents were still unsure of what they were consuming. After months of fundraising, over $125,000 was raised to purchase water for the residents. To date, over 750,000 bottles have been distributed.
