BURTON (WJRT) - (09/29/15) - A lot of people and businesses are pitching in to ease the financial burden of Flint's water worries.

"With the concerns that everyone has in regards to the lead poisoning, they have to be able to trust the water that they're drinking, that they're cooking with and they're bathing with. And we want to provide that for them," said Mel Newhouse, the store director at the Burton Meijer.

Meijer on Center Road in Burton is offering deep discounts on bottled water.

The store director says they've reached out to their company headquarters to make sure they can help as many families as possible.

"We contacted our partners in Grand Rapids to make sure we're in stock every day. We get six to 10 pallets of water every single day that come off the truck for us to sell to our customers," Newhouse said.

They already sold out of the 36 packs priced at $1.99, but they now have 24 packs at the same price.
