BrassCraft Manufacturing donated vital plumbing products to support a humanitarian relief project for Flint, Mich. residents.
The donated BrassCraft shut off valves will be used to assist plumbers who are installing new water filters and faucets. The event took place on January 30, 2016, with United Association Local 370 in Flint, which is providing the volunteer labor of more than 300 plumbers needed to do the necessary work.
The call to action came from Plumbing Manufactures International (PMI) and the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry to its members to provide any assistance they could.
“They (Flint residents) are our family, friends and neighbors,” said Delaina Lee, director of Marketing Communications. “This crisis is close to us because, as a leading plumbing manufacturer, we help people get access to clean water every day. Watching the news we see the despair and frustration of the residents of Flint and we want to do our part to help things get back to normal.”
The company’s employees also donated water to local plumbing wholesalers to help residents have clean drinking water.
