Community development organization hosting 'green' education events for Flint wards

FLINT, MI – Communities First Inc. is hosting two community education programs in the first week of June to teach Flint residents how to protect the environment, save money around the house and make Flint a better place.
The organization's education program, called Green Life, was launched April 21 with the goal of educating Flint residents and business owners about environmental concerns in the area and what they can do about them.

"Dealing with water alone, we're drinking water from the Flint River. It's important to think about what you pour down the drain," said Glen Wilson, president and CEO of Communities First Inc. "Taking care of the Flint environment also fights blight."
Both events will have activities for adults and children, free food, giveaways and cover topics ranging from how to save money on energy bills to recycling and why it is important.

The first event will be on Tuesday, June 3, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Berston Field House, 3300 N. Saginaw St.

The second event is Thursday, June 5, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the McCree Theater located at 5005 Cloverlawn drive.

The group will host more events throughout the year for every ward in the city.
