FLINT, MI (WLNS) – Masons from Michigan lodges are donating $100,000 to help children exposed to lead during Flint’s water crisis.

The Michigan Masons and the Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation will announce the contribution Tuesday during a news conference in Flint with Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and state lawmakers. The money will go to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint’s Child Health & Development Fund and be used for early childhood education, access to healthy food and behavioral health services.

Masons are members of a fraternal organization that carries out a variety of activities, including charity work.
