February Justice Offering

The monthly social justice offering for February will be collected to help those impacted by Flint, Michigan water crisis. The Community Foundation of Greater Flint (CFGF) is asking for nationwide donations to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund. Funds will support “public health, medical and community-based services” to address the impact of the water crisis on Flint families. “If there was ever a time to invest in our children, it is now,” said Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha in a press release for the CFGF. As stated on the website, “Donating to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund is the single-most important action you can take to ensure long-term change for the better in response to our water crisis. We and our partners set up the Flint Child Health & Development Fund because we recognize that significant change, namely ensuring the health of our Flint families, requires foresight and long-term planning. We know the needs of Flint children exposed to lead, particularly those most vulnerable – children ages 0-6 – are ongoing and long-term.  When you make a donation to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund, you can be assured that your gift will be used for critical interventions today and well into the future.” For more information, see their website at www.cfgf.org.
