SAVANNAH, Ga.

The “Fresh Water for Flint” drive has been a big success!

Georgetown Elementary School has collected several thousand water bottles that will soon be en route to Michigan.

The school began the water drive on March 22nd, and will continue to collect water bottles though the end of the school day, today.

With the help of students, parents, staff, and several local business and churches throughout the community, so far–more than 15,000 bottles of water were donated to the drive!

It’s with the help of a local non-profit group called, “The Indigos”, that the water will be picked up and shipped out on Saturday, April 2nd.

More water was collected than the school and the non-profit say they could have ever imagined

“It was exciting, it was exciting! Even to walk around and see the posters on the wall that the kids drew to get people to donate, it’s a great feeling,” said Phillip Davis of the local non-profit group called, “The Indigos.”
