Website matches anonymous donors with those who can’t pay water bill
DETROIT (WJBK) – A group of anonymous donors have agreed to pay the delinquent water bills for those who can’t afford them.
It’s all being done through a website made possible by the Detroit Water Project Group.
Customers who need help can apply to have their bill paid. There’s a catch, though – your bill cannot be higher than $250.
If you are interested in being an anonymous donor, you can also to be matched with someone in need.
The water department has recouped almost $2 million since launching the shutoff campaign in March. Delinquent customers still owe the department nearly $90 million.
