Students donate water to help Flint crisis

Flint Crisis Donation

A fraternity at Bloomsburg University wants to make sure a community in crisis has clean water.

Cases of bottled water were brought in by the cartload at Bloomsburg University. It's all part of one fraternity's "water drive." Vincent Phan grew up in Wilkes-Barre and is a junior at Bloomsburg University. He is aware of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan and wanted to help.

"Last month during my winter break, inspiration hit me saying I want to do a water drive. I saw Instagram pictures of it and people on social media do it so I wanted to do it here at Bloomsburg," Phan said.

Phan is a member of Phi Beta Sigma and got his fraternity brothers involved in the project. He is very concerned about the people of Flint not having clean water. He's been planning the water drive since January.

"I was raised that way to have people help others and I'm really glad that the community of Bloomsburg and the student body are coming together to donate this water."
