Donations pour in to help with Flint's water crisis

FLINT, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Donations have started to pour in for Flint residents drowning in a water crisis.

"I'm angry that flint's been put in this situation. We're a community that's trying to rebound, trying to revitalize and then we have one problem after another with our water source," said Flint Mayor Dayne Walling.

Free filters are being offered through the state and Genesse County health departments.

Even Uber is getting in on it. The ride-sharing service is offering to pick up water donations in the Detroit area until Thursday to be delivered to Flint schools at no cost.

Last week a public health emergency was declared after a report revealed high lead levels in children.
