Water Collection for Flint MI at United Milwaukee Scrap with Heal the Hood

MILWAUKEE, WI – 5 February 2016  – A 53 foot-long semi-truck will be filled with cases of water in Milwaukee’s central city and shipped to Flint, thanks to caring residents and businesses. Next week, Milwaukee community members are encouraged to bring cases of water to United Milwaukee Scrap, at 3232 W Fond du Lac Avenue, on February 12th from 7am – 4pm and on February 13th from 7 am to Noon.

The water will be then transported due to the generosity of Heal the Hood, a nonprofit that will distribute water in neighborhoods within Flint, MI.

Please share this message with your place of work, faith communities, and others who may be willing to donate water for this worthy cause. Milwaukee is a water community – let’s show Flint that we care and can take action together.

“Let’s bring our beautiful community together, and work as one, as we know we can,” said Art Arnstein, Vice President of United Milwaukee Scrap, LLC.  He and his staff look forward to welcoming donations of cases of bottled water, from the community.  Their employees will prepare the water for shipping/distribution for “Heal The Hood”.

United Milwaukee Scrap also features other community events, such as Tab Toss Day which benefits the Ronald McDonald House, and distributing ham and turkeys at Thanksgiving in the Sherman Park neighborhood.

If you are unable to assist with donating the water, but would still like to help, please make a donation via to help with the shipping costs.
