The Disaster Relief Committee voted unanimously to accept the recommendation of the Global President of the Connectional Lay Organization, Dr. Willie C. Glover
to donate $5000 to the Flint, Michigan
water crisis project.
The committee voted to support the
filter project since the city seems to be overwhelmed with donated bottled water.
Dr. Glover was informed that the filters currently being used have limited effectiveness. The Executive Board of the
CLO had previously authorized the
President to expend up to this amount without Board approval.
Fourth District Lay President, Madge White
is coordinating the Lay project. Brother
Keith Britton (7th) is the chair of
Disaster Relief Committee.
Dr. Glover's Local Church, St. Mark AME
in Columbus, OH also contributed to the
filter project. He is asking that the
Lay Organization on all levels contribute to this travesty of inhumanity in Flint.
