College rivalry turns into bottled water drive

BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

People have been coming out of the woodwork to help Flint.

On Wednesday at Delta College, a basketball game with rival Mott turned into a bottled water drive.

Anyone who brought a case of water to the gym, got in for free.

Delta's athletic director said the idea came from the athletes.

"They realize the importance of not having the opportunity to just go get fresh water from a drinking fountain, or to cook their own food in," said Shelly Raube.

They nearly doubled their goal of 100 cases, sending the Mott contingent back with a 186 cases.
