[paypal_donation_button]FLINT, MI – Officials at a local church say they can help some people with water related bills but they are not cutting checks to everyone.

A Facebook rumor that Woodside Church in Flint is cutting checks to pay Flint residents’ water bills is not true.

“We will do everything we can to help but we are not cutting checks to pay water bills,” said Woodside Reverend Deborah Conrad. “We are able to help wit some water specifics things like shutoff notices and water liens.”

Woodside is a multicultural congregation in partnership with two denominations.

Through the partnership, Conrad said the church has received a number of donations to help with certain water related expenses and they try to connect people with other resources. The donations do allow the church to help some people with shutoff notices and liens on their properties.

People seeking assistance can visit Woodside Church located at 1509 E. Court Street on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information call (810) 767-4911.
