Donate items for campuswide relief drive for residents of Flint

The Case Western Reserve University community and external partners are asked to participate in a relief drive by donating water, Pur brand water filters and baby wipes to help residents of Flint, Mich., who continue to deal with unsafe levels of lead in the city’s drinking water.

In addition, food rich in calcium, vitamin C and iron are being collected, such as canned beans, evaporated milk, canned salmon and tuna and peanut butter, as these foods help address the effects of lead exposure.

Items will be collected through Friday, March 4, and can be dropped off at the Cashier’s Office in Yost Hall, Room 127 or Yost Hall, Room 23. The items will be taken directly to Flint on March 5.

FOCUS Group Outreach Programs are sponsoring this relief drive, with support from CWRU’s Greek Life, Office of Multicultural Affairs, Center for Civic Engagement and Learning, Resident Hall Association and Bon Appétit.
