AT&T launches text-to-give campaign for Flint

Local AT&T customers can now text to make donations that will help children affected by the Flint water crisis.

AT&T Flint Donation DriveDonations collected during the giving campaign will support the Flint Child Health and Development Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, devoted to promoting positive health outcomes

“The generosity of Michiganders during the Flint water crisis has been a testament to the character of families in this community and across the state,” said Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley. “Now, thanks to AT&T, helping Flint’s children is as simple as sending a text message.”

Simply text FLINT to 27722 to make a $10 donation to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund. Donations sent via text-to-donate are added to a customer’s monthly wireless bill.

“We are grateful for the generosity of AT&T for their ongoing support of children and families affected by Flint’s water crisis,” said Kathi Horton, President of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. “AT&T’s continued support for the long-term needs of Flint’s children will make a real difference in kids’ lives.”

In late January, AT&T contributed $50,000 to support efforts of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint and its Flint Child Health and Development Fund. AT&T has also set up a YourCause employee contribution page to allow the company’s employees around the world to contribute to the recovery efforts.

“AT&T is committed to families in Flint,” said Jim Murray, President of AT&T Michigan. “Mobile technology keeps people better connected than ever before. The textto-give campaign goes an important step further, not just keeping us connected, but lending a helping hand.”
