Two Foundations Donate $10K to Flint for Ballot Boxes – The Good News
"We are so happy to join with Kyle to continue our support for the people of Flint."
Two foundations have come together with NBA star and Flint native Kyle Kuzma to bring ballot boxes to residents to make it easier for them to vote.
Kuzma, who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, and his foundation were working with Flint mayor Sheldon Neeley to decide where money could best be used in the city and, after they made the decision on ballot boxes, another foundation stepped up to help.
When the folks at the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Foundation heard about their mission, they also donated money. In all, $10,000 was raised to place ballot boxes around the city.
Mayor Neeley said, “Kyle Kuzma and the National Basketball Players Association are true community champions. I’ve watched him for years and long appreciated his talent, but I have been even more impressed seeing his strong spirit and true commitment to the City of Flint. He is a Flintstone through and through.”
You can vote at City Hall seven days per week; if you'd like to drop off your ballot securely, you can do at the following locations:
- Flint City Hall, 1101 S. Saginaw St.
- Flint Police Station, 210 E. Fifth St.
- Fire Station 3, 1525 Martin Luther King Ave.
- Fire Station 5, 3402 Western Road
- Fire Station 6, 716 West Pierson Road
- Fire Station 8, 202 East Atherton Road
Speaks volumes when native Flintstones come back to help the community. Thank you to Kyle Kuzma, his foundation and the NBPA for doing this!
