Safe Water for Communities in Crisis

You can help us bring clean water to people

in need across the USA

We believe that safe water is a human right

Created in response

to the Flint water crisis.


In 2014, the municipal water system was contaminated with lead, and Flint’s residents were forced to rely on donations of bottled water for drinking, cooking, and hygiene. Bringing in and distributing millions of bottles of water became a heavy burden for the city and community organizations.

By 2018, most of the country had forgotten about Flint, and donations of water began to dry up. 501CTHREE partnered with First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church to develop an alternative way for the church and other community organizations to get water to Flint’s residents — one without the high cost, heavy logistics, and plastic waste of relying on single-use water bottles.
