Black Millennials 4 Flint (BM4F) has a commitment to the children and families in Flint, Michigan. We have adopted the following schools: Brownell STEM Academy, Eagle's Nest Academy & Holmes STEM Academy--all located on Flint's Northside. The Flint Water Crisis and now COVID-19 has a substantial impact on our most vulnerable children. We uphold the Kwanzaa Principle "Ujima" collective work and responsibility with the belief that every child in Flint is a part of our village...#AllNeighbors.
Due to the economic decline with COVID-19, The State of Michigan slashed the education budget, leaving already underfunded and under-resourced schools in jeopardy.
OUR GOAL IS $9,000--$3,000 FOR EACH SCHOOL
With a donation of $20, $50, $100 or more, you can support our adopted schools with resources such as (but not limited to):
