Detroit Tigers Niko Goodrum to give out water to Flint residents

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Help for Flint residents continues to pour in, even from the Detroit Tigers. 

Tigers utilityman Niko Goodrum purchased 1,440 cases of bottled water that will be delivered to a Flint Community Help Center.

Goodrum will join volunteers Monday from the United Way of Genesee County and the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan to distribute the bottled water to Flint residents.

“He has wanted to lend his support to the cause ever since signing with the Tigers over the offseason and reading about the Flint water crisis,” according to a press release from the team.

The water drive will take place at Bethel United Methodist Church on Ballenger Highway. It begins at 10 a.m.  

Congressman Dan Kildee will join Goodrum to help distribute the water.
