Howard Stirk Holdings (HSH), licensee WEYI-TV (Flint) and its owner Armstrong Williams has announced a partnership with RussKap Holdings to place atmospheric water units in Flint, Michigan. HSH will be donating many units to the City as part of its new partnership.
HSH has worked as a leader in bringing new technologies to assist the people in Flint, Michigan during the water crisis and has been invaluable in its progress. Two years ago they placed a pilot atmospheric water machine with Bishop Jones in the R.L. Jones Community Outreach Center. HSH has been instrumental in bringing to light the crisis facing the people and ensuring it received the proper attention it deserved.
Now, after successful completion of a pilot program at the Hasselbring Senior Center, run by Beverly Lewis, HSH owner Armstrong Williams announced a partnership with RussKap to place their Tiffany water model units across the City to provide the cleanest and best water to the people of Flint. The impact seen has been immediate and will only continue to grow.
RussKap CEO Ed Russo said that WEYI, which HSH owns, has been at the forefront of trying to help the people of Flint. He remarked that much of the efforts have only been possible because of Williams and HSH. Yehuda Kaploun, President of RussKap, said that before the end of this month Bishop Jones’ Center will be receiving Tiffany models similar to what the Senior Center currently uses.
Armstrong Williams, owner of HSH and WEYI (NBC 25) remarked, “This partnership will help give the people of Flint access to the best water in the world. The Tiffany makes clean, healthy water from the air without any pipes. It is a tribute to Mayor Neely who has worked tirelessly to find creative solutions for the water crisis, and NBC 25 is proud to assist in this endeavor.”
