ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A new community service organization in Albany is working to help people affected by the toxic water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

Laila's Little Community Angels loaded up close to 400 cases of water donated by radio station WJIZ into a U-HAUL Thursday afternoon.
They also collected enough money to cover transportation costs.
They had help from SOWEGA Tax Service, the Daring Divas Kickball Team, and Santos Transportation.

"One of our goals is to make giving back contagious," said Laila Jackson, Organizer. "People are in need of this water. Several people have died from the lead poisoning in Flint. We want to help out where we can. We just don't have to make it just an Albany thing. Community is a community no matter where we go."

They're sending the water to a collection point in Alabama.
 It will be delivered to Flint, Michigan on Sunday.
