Donate to send relief supplies to families affected by chemical spill
Update : At this point, we have stopped sending trucks of water to affected counties. However, many families are still without clean water. We are working now to help provide rain catchment systems and portable jugs to help support long term recovery from this disaster. Please donate or share your skills with us!
Two more vehicles left on Sunday 1/19 or affected areas. More trucks leaving later this week and weekend depending on how much supplies we can raise. Please organize your community, your church, your school, your work and help us to sustain the relief. This is going to be an ongoing situation and we need a wide network of people to keep helping. Thank you for all that you have done, and all you are doing now! We are keeping the Aurora Lights' Facebook page updated with pictures and stories.
Aurora Lights sent another flat-bed truck of supplies on Thursday 1/16 to for folks in affected areas of southern West Virginia who have not been receiving sufficient water, liquid baby formula, etc., after the chemical spill last week that has poisoned their tap water. Your donations ensured the truck was packed with as much water and other supplies as it could handle. We also supported three other runs that daay, please see facebook for more details.
Thanks to your generosity, on Sunday 1/12 we were able to fill a 20 foot trailer, an SUV, a truck bed, and a smaller trailer with water to help the folks in southern West Virginia who are affected by the coal chemical spill. We were also able to send money to Coal River Mountain Watch to support water purchase and local delivery.
Let's work together to help out the people in need and make sure that we never let this happen again. More information is available on Aurora Lights' Facebook page. If you live near the affected area and have a spring, well or other clean water source that people can draw from, the West Virginia Clean Water Hub has been set up to coordinate such drinking water mutual aid.
Please donate tonight to ensure our flat-bed truck leaves Morgantown full of supplies: http://bit.ly/wvChemRelief.
Thank you everyone who has supported this effort after Freedom Industries' tank leaked 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol into the Elk River.
