Clinton School students taking part in Plainfield Community Outreach's 21st Century Learning Center Program gathered at Grace Episcopal Church Friday evening to load water to be trucked to Flint, Michigan.

The 4th to 8th grade students learned about civic engagement and the importance of volunteerism, then helped volunteers load donated bottled water onto a truck to be delivered to Triumph Church in Flint for distribution to residents.

Flint has been in the national news for high lead levels in its city water system since a disastrous switch of water sources mandated by the state on the city.
