From in-depth news reports to community outreach campaigns, WDIV-Local 4 (Detroit) has made it their mission to help their neighbors in Flint during this water crisis. The station’s consumer investigative unit, “Help Me Hank,” headed up by Hank Winchester, has joined forces with Art Van Furniture and Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee Counties to collect safe, bottled water for residents of Flint. Several truckloads have been delivered in the past two weeks, and more are on the way.
Local 4 viewers generously donated thousands of dollars during a Local 4 News phone bank last week, benefitting the Child Health & Development Fund. The funds raised go to help the children of Flint with ongoing health issues. For more information, please visit the station’s website: ClickOnDetroit.com.
