HOLLAND -- Jake Santangelo is a Holland native with a heart for the less fortunate going through the water crisis in Flint. He's also used to developing apps for his business. He decided to combine his heart with his skill to develop an app called "Safe Water Flint" this week.

The app displays water stations in the city of Flint, along with driving directions and hours of operation. Since Santangelo's app became available Tuesday, the number of water stations on the app has grown from 10 to 16. If you know of a water station in the city of Flint not listed on the app, you can email Santangelo at
