Student Association Delivers Water to Support Flint Residents - Encourages Others to Help
Members of the Black Law Student Association (BLSA) at WMU-Cooley Law School’s Grand Rapids campus recently held a water drive to support Flint residents. Students, faculty and staff donated 353 gallons of water, which students delivered to the YWCA of Greater Flint.
“BLSA wanted to demonstrate that although we are not a part of Flint’s community, we still understand and feel their misfortune,” said Kenyata McGill, WMU-Cooley law school student. “We hope our actions prompt others in the Grand Rapids community to take action as well.”
