Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, Nestlé and PepsiCo said Tuesday that they will donate up to 6.5 million bottles of water to schoolchildren in Flint, Mich., to help with the public health emergency caused by the city’s lead-tainted water.

The companies announced that they are planning to “collectively donate water to meet the daily needs of over 10,000 schoolchildren for the balance of the calendar year.” To do so, the companies will send 176 truckloads of bottled water — up to 6.5 million bottles — to Flint.

“We are grateful for Wal-Mart and their suppliers’ support during this crisis,” said Bilal Tawwab, Flint Community Schools Superintendent.

“Access to safe water is a basic human right,” said Tony West, executive vice president of government affairs at PepsiCo.
