  • Voices of West Englewood

  • Teamwork Englewood
  • Grow Greater Englewood
  • Southwest Federation of Block Clubs of Greater Englewood

    Similar to most of the United States, these groups are outraged over the public health emergency due to the ongoing water crisis in Flint. These residents and organizations of Englewood need your help!

    Although, there are many efforts to supply water to residents, these groups have learned through a direct connection in Flint, MI that the needs are far much greater. Many of the residents are facing challenges that prevent them from exercising basic hygienic habits on daily basis.

    The initiative – From Englewood to Flint are soliciting items until April 23rd to provide basic care kits. The items in these kits will include the following:

  • Assurance Premium Disposable Wash Cloths
  • Baby Wipes
  • Baby Oil
  • Rinse Free Shampoo
  • Dry Shampoo
  • Basic cleaner/Clean Face wash
  • Simple foaming face wash
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Vitamin C Drops
  • Listerine Tablets
  • Cases of Water

The goal is to provide 400 of these basic care kits to the elderly and disable who are unable to travel to the distribution centers in Flint, MI.   You can either donate the items above by dropping them off at any of our drop off locations listed in the flier or make a monetary donation to Teamwork Englewood –c/o From Englewood to Flint – 815 W. 63rd, 2nd Fl. Chicago, IL  60621 any time before April 23rd.  The group is planning to bring these items to Flint on April 30th.
