A group of Flint water activists is starting a new charity to help people not reached by government and other groups.
Organizer Lee Anne Walters says Community Development Organization’s first priority will be to help people who find they can’t pay medical bills tied to Flint’s lead tainted drinking water.
“It’s something that needs to be done. It’s a great need in the community. And so this is where we feel we fit best right now,” says Walters.
Walters says their initial goal is to raise $1 million, though she admits the need is much greater.
