Youth2 Workshop: Operation Clean Water: Flint Four Years Later: 3-4 pm. 106 Ladd
Event: Sustainability Fair sponsored by Sustainable Saratoga and Skidmore College
Date: Saturday, April 6th 2019
Location: Case Center, Skidmore College
Join us to put pencil bags together with a personalized letter to be sent to a Flint Elementary School to let the children know we haven’t forgotten them! Adults, students and youth will write letters to the Mayor and Governor of Flint to remind them to keep thinking about clean water in their community.
Also, we will be accepting donations to the Flint Water Fund. 100% of the donations will be used to supply clean water to residents of Flint, Michigan: purchasing and distributing bottled water, providing filtration devices not given out by the state, and giving health care access to children affected by lead poisoning.
We are a field of interest fund formed under the guidance of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. Youth2 has been created to engage young people to think about issues that they care about and to create volunteer or social action projects for youth and by youth. Youth2 is committed to giving financial and thoughtful organizational support to help interested young people turn their ideas into realities.
