PATERSON, NJ - As Newark residents continue to rely on bottled water as a result of inflated lead levels, a large group of Paterson area elected officials and organizations are seeking to assist their neighbors in New Jersey's largest city.

Making its rounds on social media, and as announced Saturday by Paterson Councilwoman Lilisa Mimms, a bottled water drive is underway.

From Monday, September 9 until Friday, September 13, anyone can donate bottled water at between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at 60 Temple Street.
