Consumers Energy Foundation Donates to LiveWell on Harrison
Flint, MI – The YMCA of Greater Flint is excited to announce the Consumers Energy Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to LiveWell on Harrison, the new multi-use building currently under construction in Downtown Flint.
“One of the Consumers Energy Foundation’s goals is to ensure the people of our state have access to the tools and resources they need to thrive,” said Cathy Wilson, secretary/treasurer of the Consumers Energy Foundation. “We know one of the best ways to do that is to bring needed resources to where people already are, and we recognize how vital projects like LiveWell are to meeting many types of needs simultaneously. We are proud to work with the YMCA of Greater Flint to help make this dream a reality.”
“We are incredibly grateful to Consumers Energy Foundation for this gift,” shared Shelly Hilton, CEO, YMCA of Greater Flint. “Both of our organizations have a long history of serving Flint residents and neighbors for over 100 years and helping our local community grow and thrive. We both believe in investing in people to create a positive impact in our world.”
LiveWell on Harrison is a multi-use facility being built on the corner of Harrison and Third Street. Innovative partnerships will see the Y join with 50 units of apartments, Hurley Physical Therapy Clinic, and Crim Fitness Foundation, to create the new home of health and wellness in Flint. The facility is slated to open January 2025. With the gift from Consumers Energy Foundation, the YMCA has now raised 94% of their $21 million goal.
