FLINT, MI (WNEM/AP) -

Following reports of lead contamination in the water system, a local church is looking to help.

The House of Prayer MBC Outreach Ministry was planning to give away water on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The ministry handed out more than 500 free cases of water to residents who may not be able to afford it.

But the giveaway didn't take two hours. Instead, they ran out of cases before 5 p.m.

This was House of Prayer's third time distributing free cases of bottled water to residents this year.
