Owners Rumors

Kids in Flint are getting $25 vouchers to buy produce at the Flint Farmers Market. Through an expanded partnership with the Michigan State University-Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, FlintNOW, an initiative by Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores, and the national Basketball Players Association (NBPA) announced they will distribute $325,000 worth of gift certificates for fruits and vegetables all Flint children, starting Friday, Nov. 8.
In a statement, Gores, a Flint native, praised the NBPA Foundation and NBA players from around the country for investing in Flint and its children. “We are expanding the program and bringing more people together because kids in Flint deserve our support more than ever,” said Gores. “I’m proud of the way the NBA and players throughout the league continue to step up. Healthy food and good nutrition can make a real impact on the day to day lives of children and their families.”
