Jack White’s Third Man Records is holding a pair campaigns to help aid victims of the water crisis in Flint.

White’s Third Man store in the Cass Corridor is collecting water to send to those in need. Through Monday, for every gallon (or case) of water brought to the store, donors will receive a raffle ticket for a drawing of Third Man’s limited edition “Hateful Eight” soundtrack package (due out Monday). Donors will also receive 20 percent off their purchase at the store, which opened its doors in November 2015.

In addition, Third Man has launched an online fundraising drive through CrowdRise to raise money to benefit the United Way of Genesee County’s Flint Water Fund. Those who donate through https://www.crowdrise.com/thirdmanrecords will be entered into a drawing to win a five-year Platinum subscription to Third Man’s Vault series, which sends members rare recordings from Third Man’s archives on a quarterly basis.

Seattle rock band Pearl Jam and Detroit rapper Big Sean are also holding CrowdRise drives to aid those in Flint.
