Wednesday, March 30th, 2016, The Youth Connection donated bottled water, paper products, cleansing wipes, and bottles of hand sanitizer to help Flint, Michigan families dealing with the current water and economic crisis. Students and staff from The Youth Connection (TYC) delivered the goods to students at New Standard Academy. TYC students then read to kindergarten and first grade students and participate in an interactive educational activity with fifth and sixth grade students in addition to handing out the donated goods.
