‘GR Loves Flint’ group living up to their name

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Members of a Grand Rapids group GR Loves Flint are stepping up to help residents of Flint in the middle of that city's water crisis. They created a Facebook page and GoFundMe account to provide relief.

So far the group has raised $600 for Flint, which is still pretty far from their goal of $3,000. Gr Loves Flint also partnered with Grand Rapids Screen Printing to make t-shirts for donations over $15.

Although Flint is several hours from Grand Rapids, local residents say this crisis is happening too close to home.

Once the group feels that they've raised enough money, they will head to Flint to hand-deliver water to those in need.
