We can't believe the star power that's coming out to support St. Michael's! Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has teamed up with Colgate to tell the story of the incredible teachers and students at St. Michael's with our own American Projects Director, Emma Robbins. Check out the video!
We're so happy to announce that we've made the first big step in bringing clean, safe water to St. Michael's Special Needs School!
With help from our friends at FloWater, we installed 5 state-of-the-art water purification machines in classrooms, group homes and kitchens on campus.
The kids were so excited to see the friendly blue machines glowing brightly in their classrooms. We even had a water bottle decorating party -- there were stickers everywhere!
FloWater machines remove harmful contaminants like lead and arsenic and replace important nutrients like oxygen and minerals. They've been used to treat unsafe water in places like Flint, MI.
But we're not done yet! These FloWater units will provide clean water to St. Michael's while we continue to build a full water treatment plant on campus.
