Individuals could go home with one gallon of water. Families could get two gallons.

"It is our goal and our duty to help those in need and even though this isn't officially labeled as a you know we have lead in our water we want to make sure and take the precautionary action to help those just in case," says Erin Campbell, the Director of Communications for the Salvation Army in Jackson.

The water was available on a first-come, first-served basis at 110 Presto Lane in Jackson.
