Local resident organizes relief effort for Midland residents

ALPENA, Mich -After watching a news report Chelsea Watson contacted United Way and learned that residents began taking showers last week and were still in need.

Watson was moved by the impact the flood was having so much so that she organized an event at her local church.

She said she’s not looking for any attention but that it is her goal in life to be kind and spread kindness to others.

Watson also said that the United Way representative was overwhelmed and almost cried because of the response from the people in Alpena.

Additionally, Watson expressed that during times of need, assisting where you can should be automatic.

Tables for drop off will be set up at Alpena Free Methodist Church tomorrow on Ripley where they will be collecting personal hygiene items, bottled water, and cleaning supplies.

Drop off times are tomorrow, Tuesday, between 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m .
