HELP & SUPPORT:

CFPUA is partnering with the City of Wilmington and area churches to provide free water from Ogden Park to citizens unable to get to the free water station.

Churches will transport empty containers to Ogden Park where they will be filled with treated groundwater at no cost. Church volunteers will then bring the filled containers back to the designated churches, where customers can pick them up. Churches will be open for drop off between 9:00 am and 11:00 am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and for pick up between 1:00 pm and 3:00 p.m. on the same days.

ALL THE DETAILS ARE HERE

Three churches in the greater downtown area will be offering drop-off and pick-up services.
