Truckloads of water are a fairly common sight in Flint, but Wednesday’s donation to Catholic Charities was anything but common.

It was delivered by folks wearing the scarlet and gray of the Ohio State University.

One of the organizers of the donation says it was very easy to put aside the rivalry for this very worthy cause.

"We're from the Ohio State University's College of Social Work, in Columbus Ohio and as social workers we're called to serve," said student Terry Taylor. "It's one of the key social work values that we have to put things aside and do the work we need to do."

The head of Catholic Charities was happy to see some Buckeyes invade Wolverine country.

What do some of the OSU volunteers think about being in Blue country?

"I like Michigan, very friendly people, we've met some people here from Wyoming so it's been a good experience," said student Ashley Sanchez.

The Ohioans delivered more than 10,000 pounds of water on Wednesday.  After all, we're all the same when you get right down to it. 

"You're our neighbor and you don't have clean water and specifically for me as the organizer I take my clean water every day for granted," Taylor said.
