Flint area families receive gift packages from Mateen Cleaves

Posted: Updated:

(12/017/13) - It's not quite Christmas yet, but the mood sure has been festive around the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Flint Monday.

Two hundred and fifty Flint area families were there picking up gift packages from one of the city's strongest supporters - Mateen Cleaves.           

It's all part of his "1 Goal, 1 Passion: Hope for the Holidays" initiative.

Cleaves and several for-profit and non-profit companies united to support 1,000 Michigan families in need.  The families had previously registered. 

Each family will receive a holiday gift package that includes basic essentials, including meals and gifts, as well as access to life sustainment programs, according to a news release.

Grand Rapids area families picked up packages last Thursday.  Saginaw families received theirs Sunday.  Lansing was Monday.  Detroit area families will pick up their packages Friday.
