Local group collects items for Flint, Michigan

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT)- A group of local artists are giving back in a big way.

Eyestar, a local record company is driving 500 cases of water to Flint, Michigan to help during their crisis. On Thursday, the group went to Walmart to buy 100 cases of water, bath tissue, and diapers. After all the materials are collected they will load up a trailer and bus to Michigan on Monday. One of the organizers, Kelly Harper, says it feels good to give back. He says it’s important to help people when they are in need.

“We thought about when Floyd was here, people came from everywhere and helped us, so why not reach out to someone else.”The group will also hold a free concert while they are in Michigan. They hope their gospel music will lift up the Michigan community.
