Propane business holding water drive for Flint

From March 1-19, sixteen AmeriGas Propane locations will be holding a Bottled Water Drive for Flint residents.

Water may be dropped off at designated AmeriGas, Holton’s, or Rural Gas’ locations from Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or at a special “Bottled Water Drive” event on Saturday, March 19 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

In Swanton, AmeriGas is located at 10501 Airport Highway.

“We service the Flint area, and we see them struggling. These folks are our customers, and our friends,” said Mike George, area director for AmeriGas. “We felt a responsibility to do whatever we could to help them with their situation.”

AmeriGas greatly appreciates those in the community who donate to this effort. Anyone who makes a minimum donation of either one case (24-32 Bottles) of bottled water or five one gallon jugs of water will receive one coupon to have their 20# cylinder (BBQ cylinder) filled at one of our participating locations free of charge.

Coupons are not redeemable until Monday, March 21. Tanks must be within certification to be eligible for the free fill. Coupons will be good through Labor Day 2016. You do not need to be an AmeriGas customer to be eligible. Limit one coupon per donation/household.
