Glover Quin, Lions secondary donate water bottles to help Flint

Another group of Detroit Lions players are attempting to help out with the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

Safety Glover Quin announced on his Facebook page Wednesday that he and his fellow defensive backs are donating 36,000 water bottles to the city of Flint, which is dealing with lead contamination in the water supply.

This has led the citizens of the city to need bottled water for drinking, cooking and bathing.

President Obama and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder have both declared Flint to be in a state of emergency.

Quin and the other Lions defensive backs are the latest NFL players to offer assistance to Flint.

Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah and some of his teammates donated more than 94,000 bottles of water to the city last week. The Lions, as an organization, gave an undisclosed amount of money to the United Way to help with the relief efforts.

Seattle running back Thomas Rawls, a native of Flint, has said he is figuring out ways to help as well.

Quin, who had assistance from Don Carey, Alex Carter, Quandre Diggs, Nevin Lawson and Josh Wilson on the donation, said he would give any business that donates more than 36,000 water bottles to Flint an autographed football as extra incentive.
