As we know, the current water crisis in Jackson has been decades in the making! Years of neglect and temporary patches instead of substantial investment in long-term solutions have gotten us here. UUJXN wants to be a part of long-term meaningful change in our community!
We are partnering with other organizations to collect and distribute water. We will be distributing water on weekends on the west side of Fondren.
On our property, we have a capped off well. We are currently exploring with partners about restoring the well and testing the water quality. If this well can be restored, we will use it to serve as a source of water for our community.
Please contact our Ministry Council to see how you can help! You may also donate via PayPal toward these efforts. [Please add “Jackson Water Crisis” in the note for online donations.]
