Help the NASW Mississippi Chapter address Jackson’s water crisis

Aug 31, 2022

Crumbling infrastructure and recent flooding in Mississippi caused an already struggling water treatment plant in the state capital of Jackson to collapse. Residents in the city of 150,000 are having difficulty getting water to drink or to flush toilets, prompting the city to close schools and business and residents to wait in long lines for water.

The NASW Mississippi Chapter has mobilized volunteers to help and is seeking donations.

Suggested donations include:

  1. Gift cards (Wal-Mart, Kroger, VISA, etc.: Assist with restocking food pantry)
  2. Water
  3. Beverages (Gatorade, juice, sodas, etc.)
  4. Snack
  5. Non-perishable items
  6. Wipes (biodegradable)
  7. Toiletries

These items can be shipped to:
