Are you a nonprofit who needs products in order to help?
Your donations go towards getting the right products to the Flint community when those products are most needed. Click below to see how Good360 makes this happen with your help.
Catholic Charities’ mission has always been to help families with food, personal hygiene items, diapers, and household items at no cost. Last year, we distributed more than 36,000 diapers, 200,000 pieces of clothing, and provided over 185,000 meals. Since the Flint water crisis was exposed last October, the number of families seeking our assistance has increased. We are thankful for partners like Good360 and companies like CVS that have provided us with donated products that allow us to serve our community more efficiently and helps families gain some normalcy.
The product needs of the families of Flint go beyond bottled water and filters, and we are thankful to have access to a variety of goods that will help support our families and babies. For example, our agency has been asked by the local medical facilities to not only provide healthy meals, but to also supply vitamin C supplements, which can help reverse the effects of lead poisoning. Thanks to this donation we can do that. We have also been able to expand our support of families with infants by providing them with diapers, wipes and formula.
Our ability to help our community for over 75 years would not be possible without the help of others providing products, monetary donations and volunteer work. Thank you!
Clean, enriched water is vital to the health of our children and Flint’s kids do not have it readily available at this time. Because of this need in our community, we are thankful for the truckload of Nursery Water that was donated by DS Services through Good360.
The water is currently being distributed to our parents with young children at both our Head Start socialization events and during home visits. Though there are water distribution sites throughout the city, a donation of water direct to our organization makes it much more accessible to our parents. If we didn’t have resources to deliver water to our families, parents without transportation would have to bundle up their babies and take the bus to the distribution site, and then carry cases of water back home!
We appreciate the support from organizations like Good360 and DS Services that recognize that water is essential to the well-being of our Flint kids and want to help.
When Dedicated Believers Ministries was formed, we believed that one day we would receive products that would be used to encourage those in need in the Flint community. Our vision was to create avenues and partnerships in hopes of leveraging resources that would be freely given to persons who needed them.
This desire came to fruition thanks to the generosity and support of CVS and Good360 in response to the Flint Water Crisis. Through our H.E.L.P. (Helping, Encouraging, and Lifting People) Center we are thankful for the opportunity to distribute needed items like baby formula, diapers, Vitamin C supplements, antibacterial soap and toothbrush and toothpaste travel kits to help people in need, especially those exposed to lead and water contamination.
Our prayers were heard and we thank our national partners, CVS and Good360, as well as our local ones like Catholic Charities and their North End Soup Kitchen for allowing us the privilege to offer H.E.L.P to Flint!

We have been providing basic services to Flint’s homeless, poor and mentally ill since 2009, but our mission expanded in September 2014 when Pastor Bobby and team began distributing bottled water to the people in our community. This was about the time that the city started to send out notices about chemicals in the water, but more than a year before the water was declared not safe for drinking and the Flint water crisis gained national attention. Now 18 months later, we continue to distribute water and other needed goods to hundreds of people each day.
We are so thankful for the generous donations from CVS Health and Good360 and all those that have supported Flint. Our community really benefits from all that’s been donated through and to Mission of Hope.
The picture above is of Heather. She would like to thank you for the donations that we have received. Heather has three babies in diapers, and has been coming here to receive food, clothing, water and vouchers. In her spare time, she likes to donate her time and help out around the Mission. She is one of many that benefit from the many donations to Pastor Bobby and the Mission.
Thank you and God Bless!
How Good360 is Helping
Good360 is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan nonprofit that is dedicated to providing the right goods to the right people at the right time at all stages of a disaster, even when the goods needed most change from one day to the next.
In 2015, a stubborn pediatrician in Flint, Michigan stood up and spoke out when it mattered most for the children of the Flint community, holding a press conference to announce to the world the findings of her team’s independent study on the impacts of possible lead contamination of the Flint River. These findings revealed that the blood-lead levels had doubled and even tripled in children since the city switched its water supply in 2014, with possibly up to 12,000 children having been exposed to the contaminated water.
Good360 is taking that same action-focused approach to the response and long-term recovery effort by galvanizing corporate, foundation, and individual donors, and collaborating with Flint-based nonprofits to provide NSF-certified supplies and critically-needed goods to the Flint community through the end of the calendar year and beyond.
The crisis in Flint did not have to happen, but you can help ensure a bright future for the children of Flint.

In April 2014, it was decided to temporarily switch Flint’s water source from the Detroit water system to the Flint River. Because the river water was not properly treated, lead from the city’s water pipes and lines leached into the drinking water. Flint has since returned to the Detroit system, but the water is not yet safe to drink and concerns remain regarding the risk of lead exposure to the city’s children.
