Four of the nation’s largest bottled water distributors are pledging to donate millions of bottles to children in Flint.
The city’s drinking water is contaminated with lead. And lead can have a detrimental effect on the health and development of young children.
Walmart, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Nestle say they will give more than six million bottles of water to take care of the needs of 10,000 Flint area school-aged children through this year.
Kathleen McLaughlin is the president of the Walmart Foundation. She says there are still some issues to be worked out.
