Today, Kroger stores in Burton and Saginaw are collecting bottled water which will be distributed to residents of Flint.

Kroger customers can drop off or purchase water for their donation at the Kroger store located at 1200 E. Bristol Rd. in Burton, or the Kroger on State St. in Saginaw. In addition to customers' donations, Kroger will donate 40 pallets of water to Flint residents. Distribution will be handled by the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.

Last week, the state of Michigan announced it would be halting distribution of bottled water, and closing the city's four water distribution centers.

Water donations will be accepted at both Kroger locations until 7 pm tonight.
