NBA stars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul are using their foundations to assist with the water crisis in Flint, Mich. 

Anthony sent out a tweet Tuesday asking fans to join him, Paul and James to help Flint. The city has been mired in a state of emergency since January due to dangerously high levels of lead contamination in its water. James, Paul and Anthony are donating water and organic food to the city through their foundations.

The three players are teaming with Thrive Market, a membership-based online shopping platform, to make the donations.

James, Paul and Anthony have all been teammates on the U.S. Men’s Olympic team. James and Anthony were also both members of the 2003 NBA draft class.
