GHS students donate recycle bins to Flint

Since the Flint Water Crisis made headlines, communities all over Michiana have donated their time and resources to help the people of Flint, Michigan.

On Thursday morning, a bus full of Goshen High School students left for Flint with a large donation.

All year long, people in Michiana have sent countless water bottles to Flint in order to bring some relief to a devastated community.

With that in mind, students from Goshen High School decided to donate something different, which would help manage all those water bottles---

And after several weeks of organizing, their hard work and unique idea came into fruition on Thursday morning.

 “We pretty much made a bunch of recycling barrels that we painted to specific clubs in our schools because of the excessive water bottles they have because they can’t drink their own water,” said Mitchell Walters, a Goshen High School student.

Goshen’s principal, Barry Younghans, says the entire project was put together solely by the students.

A total of 47 barrels were sent to Flint.
