FLINT (WJRT) -

(10/25/12) - Several low income homeowners in Flint with leaky roofs can face winter with more optimism.

Consumers Energy Foundation's secretary-treasurer delivered a $125,000 grant Thursday to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to support the Raise the Roof project.

The program is designed to repair or replace the roofs of homeowners who qualify.

Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, health care organizations and numerous Flint area donors, enough money was raised to qualify for the matching grant.

"It's very heartwarming. I see the proposals every day. That's what I do for a living. But when you get to meet the people who really are impacted by that philanthropy, it makes a great difference to us," said Carolyn Bloodworth, of the Consumers Energy Foundation.

Consumers Energy is celebrating its 125th anniversary by supporting several community projects around the state.
