WIBX's First News with Keeler in the Morning Show is teaming up with the Utica Boilermaker to collect bottled water for the residents of Flint, Michigan.

Bill Keeler says they'll be working with community members in sister city Utica, Michigan to get the desperately needed water to Flint.

The first event to fill a Utica Mack truck is scheduled for Saturday night at the Utica Comets game.

After the Comets game, the truck will be located outside Chanatry's all next week.  Chanatry's will be selling cases of bottled water at $1.99 as part of the effort.

People can also drop off cases of water at Charlie's Pizza in Whitesboro, Washington Mills and North Utica.
