NORWALK, Conn. -- In response to the tainting of the water system in Flint, Michigan, the Norwalk Community College chapter of the Student World Assembly will be collecting bottled water and water filters on the NCC campus until Thursday, March 17.
The SWA is a non-governmental, non-partisan organization created to represent students globally for the exchange of views, voting on global issues and translating ideas into meaningful actions. SWA will have boxes in both East and West Campus atria, where bottled water and water filters can be donated.
Donations are welcome from all members of the community and can also be brought to the ESL Office, E206.
Bottled water must be in sealed packages or cases: no loose bottles. Gallon containers with unbroken seals are also accepted. For more information about the types of water filters that are being accepted, click here.
The NCC chapter of SWA will be delivering the water to Flint during NCC's spring break. For more information, please contact SWA President Senan Agblonon at firstname.lastname@example.org or Robert Emigh at email@example.com.
