Bardstown Police Chief enters office, finds wall of water for Flint
BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin had a very wet welcome waiting in his office when he arrived Tuesday morning.
In a video posted to the Bardstown Police Department facebook page (which you can view by clicking here,) McCubbin explains the situation. According to the Chief, the department decided they wanted to do something to help people in Flint, Michigan, who have been struggling with a water supply contaminated by lead.
The Chief says he challenged four platoons to gather water, and whoever collected the most would get a free lunch.
Apparently, the officers in Bardstown are big fans of free lunch, as they collected 180 cases (with more on the way,) of water to be sent to Flint.
The Chief is taking the water wall in stride, saying that even though the donations keep him pretty well blocked into his office, “Bardstown Police are all about helping others. And folks,” McCubbin adds, “we’re not done yet.”
