Generals Lend Helping Hand

February 9, 2010 - International Hockey League 2 (IHL 2) - Flint Generals News Release

FLINT, MI - The Flint Generals, proud members of the IHL, will be spending a few hours giving back to the Flint community this afternoon, helping out at the Catholic Charities North End Soup Kitchen located at East Stewart Avenue in Flint.

Players will help prepare and serve food from 2 PM - 6 PM to those in the area who are in need of a helping hand this winter season.

Catholic Charities was founded in 1941 by Father Earl V. Sheridan to help ease the burdens and pains felt in the Flint community as a result of World War II. By 1945 the agency became more encompassing in the services provided and expanded its reach to include aid in things such as hospital arrangements for unwed mothers, youth counseling, jobs for the unemployed, and financial assistance to needy families and individuals.

North End Soup Kitchen has been around for 69 years, merging with the Holy Angels Sandwich Program and the Catholic Social Services of Flint in 1987, giving the volunteer food programs their first administrative home.
