Pistons owner Tom Gores, who is a Flint native, is pledging to raise ten million dollars to address the short term needs as well as the long term needs to his home town of Flint.

Gores says Flint was once the corner stone of American industry and that people from coast to coast need to step up and help.

The Detroit Pistons owner says he has appointed  two associates to raise money from other business leaders and identify priorities in Flint.  Gores is stepping up to help Flint and wants to set an example to others will follow.
