Residents Express Their Gratitude & Excitement
As we mentioned earlier this month, Jaden Smith is doing great things in Flint, Michigan, which still doesn’t have clean water.
The rapper and Smith golden child has partnered with First Trinity Missionary Baptist church to bring a mobile water filtration system call “The Water Box” to the city. It reduces lead and other damaging contaminants from the water. Thus, residents can bring their jugs to The Water Box on Thursdays between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to get clean water. Jaden brought the project about with his organization JUST.
Flint made world news back in 2014 when it was revealed that the city had lead-tainted water. Since then, water bottle drives have been aimed at the city and they’re currently trying to replace water lines.
Until then, you can find out more about Jaden and the church’s Water Box in the clip below with Jada Pinkett Smith tagging along for Jaden’s impactful work.
