Pro Boxing Event - Fight For Flint - to Benefit Catholic Charities Neighbors In Need

Fight For Flint will bring added awareness and support to individuals and families served through Catholic Charities’ three community-based Soup Kitchens, three Sandwich Pro-grams and a large Community Closet of personal care, household, clothing and linen items for anyone in need of immediate support. As the foundation of Catholic Charities’ mission to Provide Help and Create Hope, healthy meals, food pantry items, clean water, infant formula and many other resources, including counseling, substance abuse treat-ment/recovery and prevention and outreach assistance services that support healthy de-velopment and positive outcomes are offered to all who seek assistance.

“Flint needs our help, and Catholic Charities and other partners are here to offer it,” says Vicky L. Schultz, CEO of Catholic Charities. “Everyone everywhere needs to know about the hardship we are experiencing here, and all the efforts being made by so many to provide help and hope for the people of Flint.”

Catholic Charities and the Convention Visitors Bureau plan to kick off the event with a website launch “FightForFlint.org” this week, where supporters can purchase, online, October 1st event tickets, sports memorabilia and other unique items, make donations and join as business partners.

“We are seeking local and national support, and have enlisted the help of many friends, both near and far, to contribute,” Don Elbaum, event promoter says. “Everyone is in for a real show with this event.”
