Flint, MI—February 5, 2016—Coyote is proud to provide 30,000 bottles of water to the residents of Flint, Michigan, affected by the water crisis.
“We were able help the people of Flint today,” said CEO Jeff Silver, “and I’m incredibly proud of what our Coyotes have helped to achieve today and every day.”
When the truckload of water arrived at Greater Holy Temple in Flint on Friday, February 5, volunteers from Coyote’s Ann Arbor office were there to unload it. The group then headed to Center for Hope Community Closet, run by Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee Counties, to unload another truckload and distribute water to residents.
“It is a testament to our mission of doing the right thing every time,” said Coyote Director of Sales Operations Justin Turner, who spearheaded the mission. “We work for an incredible company, and it is our ability to help others in need that is the true definition of our character, the same character and integrity that are the foundation of Coyote.”
