After two plus years of silence the water crisis in Flint, Michigan is no longer an issue relegated to a small region in the United States. The water crisis has been given a global platform that will no longer allow state officials to turn their heads and ignore such an inhumane travesty.
Penske Corporation, Wayne Metro, and Wal-Mart partners with renown gospel singers/multiple Grammy award-winners Donnie McClurkin and Marvin L. Winans for Flint water donation. McClurkin and Winans will be on hand to deliver over 6000 cases of water to churches and those physically unable to visit water distribution centers between 10am-12pm.
Several trucks will depart Detroit the morning of February 11. The first delivery will arrive at Bountiful Love Missions Church located at 3432 W. Pasadena Avenue at 10am. Other stops include Greater Holy Temple COGIC at 6207 N. Dort Highway, and El Shaddai Ministries at 920 Walnut Street. Water donations will be accepted at each location for those desiring to participate with water donations.
“As a show of support for the residents of the city of Flint (due to no fault of their own) we the churches of Perfecting Fellowship International join with the efforts of Penske Corporation, Wayne Metro, Walmart and Rutherford Winans Academy to bring relief to all affected by this water crisis. We pledge to continue our support with this effort,” Bishop Marvin L Winans.
The members of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, New York where the overseer is Pastor Donnie McClurkin, raised $5,000 to purchase over 2000 cases of bottled water to donate to the residents of Flint. The PFC donation will be a part of the shipment scheduled for delivery on Thursday that’s spear-headed by Bishop Marvin L. Winans.
“This is not a one-time donation. We will put forth out best efforts to continue to aid and assist Flint residents as long as there is a water issue,” says Pastor Donnie McClurkin.
Contributors for the Flint Water Delivery includes the following: Bishop Marvin L. Winans & Perfecting Fellowship International pastors (Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Pastor D’Andre Armstead, Pastor Wilma McDougal, Pastor Larry Trice, Jr., Pastor Cordell Jenkins, Pastor Reginald Hye, Pastor Eric Tolbert and Pastor Hurley Coleman), Rutherford Winans Academy, Loretta Boges, and church parishioners.
