Become a Volunteer

WPD has worked tenaciously with its network of volunteers to provide water to Detroit residents and advocate for a sustainable water future. WPD canvasses door-to-door in order to provide information to Detroit residents. WPD also manages an emergency water hotline, supervises Water Stations, and delivers water to households in need of water relief.  Partnering with coalitions and countless other grassroots organizations, WPD VOLUNTEERS are a critical part of building water justice and the Human Right to Water!
