A great partner for our second Water Box, MBTC reaches an area of Flint which was severely impacted by the water crisis. MBTC provides evening water distribution hours allowing people who are working or in school during the day to have more convenient access to the Water Box. Since the church closed to the public in response to Covid-19, the Water Box at MBTC was relocated to the nearby Prince of Peace church and water distribution has continued.  You can find out more about MBTC here: http://themetrobt.org/

The Water Box at MBTC was made possible by a donation from Ellen Degeneres and General Mills.
