FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation is planning to help needy residents of Genesee and neighboring counties this winter with an $800,000 program.

The Flint-based foundation announced a series of grants Sunday to groups serving the poor.

The foundation says it seeks to “help bring much-needed relief to Genesee County residents struggling to meet their most basic needs this winter.”

The grants include $325,000 to Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee Counties. Mott says that will support the North End Soup Kitchen, a 24-four hour warming center near downtown Flint, and the St. Christopher Medical Transport program.

The foundation says that the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is getting $150,000 for protein-rich food items and for distribution help.
