SALISBURY, Md.- Following the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, a Salisbury organization is stepping up to help the families who no longer have a supply of fresh water.

50KSouls has made a commitment to sending a tractor-trailer full of water bottles to Flint, providing families with some water to drink.  The truck is set to leave in early March. 

"They need water to cook, they need water to bathe, and they also need fresh water to drink.  So the goal on the eastern shore is come together city by city, community by community, and make sure we are able to send a tractor trailer full of water to Flint, Michigan to let them know that we understand, and we care," said 50KSouls creator Jermichael Mitchell.

50KSouls has also partnered with Cambridge business Mr. Martin's Detailing.  Sergio Martinez, the owner of the business, said he was contacted by the Salisbury group, and felt obligated to help after seeing the images in Flint.

"The pictures really scared me.  You see kids drinking the water, it looks like mud coming out of the tap.  I've got kids myself, so it hit home really heavy.  It's $2.49 for a case of water. We blow more money than that every day."

50KSouls is asking anyone interested in donating water to drop it off at one of the locations below.  Although that goal is to send one truck, the group is hoping to send two or three.

-507 Calloway St., Salisbury

-1808 Jersey Road, Salisbury

-522 Race St., Cambridge
