Emergency fund launched for Flint, Mich., Water Crisis relief


FlintWaterCrisisReliefIn response to the lead-contaminated water crisis in Flint, Mich., the EPC has launched an emergency relief fund to help meet the affected population’s need for clean water, as well as other needs resulting from drinking, cooking, and washing with lead-contaminated water.

Two EPC churches in Flint—Peace Presbyterian (David Galbraith, Pastor) and Calvary Presbyterian (Pete Scribner, Pastor)—are ministering to affected residents.

“Solving this problem will be a long-term matter,” Galbraith said. “But any help that can be given to meet the immediate needs of people who are suffering in this crisis is greatly appreciated.”

Click here to donate online (Choose “Emergency Relief” from the first pulldown menu and “Flint Water Crisis Relief (051)” from the second pulldown menu), or make check payable to Evangelical Presbyterian Church and designated Flint Water Crisis Relief, and send to:

Evangelical Presbyterian Church
17197 N. Laurel Park Dr., Suite 567
Livonia, MI 48152

All donations given to the fund will be sent to the leadership of Peace and Calvary churches for distribution.

Thank you for helping provide relief to those in need.
