FLINT (WJRT) - (09/30/15) – Cases of bottled water went fast at a giveaway Wednesday afternoon in Flint.

The House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church on West Carpenter Road had about 700 cases of water to hand out.

A long line of cars stretched around the building, so they began a little early.

The water was gone in about an hour.

So far, the church hasn’t scheduled another giveaway.

April is national Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Planting pinwheels, one by one – thousands of reminders.

There are 2,000 confirmed cases of child abuse in Genesee County each year.

“That’s an awful lot of children,” said Marcia Franks, Weiss Child Advocacy Center.

With those numbers in mind, the Weiss Child Advocacy Center in Flint planted a pinwheel garden and released blue balloons into the sky to honor the start of Child Abuse Prevention Month.
