Flint Bowling Alley Offers Free Bowling for Kids

Submitted by on September 1, 2010 – 3:07 pm One Comment

In Flint, Michigan, the unemployment rate is about 14 percent. Many kids in the area live in unsafe neighborhoods and don’t have the money to participate in league sports or other after school activities.

Despite the struggling local economy, the local bowling alley Richfield Bowl has offered free bowling to 3,000 children, the equivalent of $1 million in lost revenue.

Through the program, children gain confidence, make new friends, have a fun time, and get a chance to enjoy being kids instead of worrying about the real-world problems their families are facing.

To learn more about Richfield Bowl and see their program featured on the NBC Nightly News, go to http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/09/01/flint-michigan-free-bowling-for-kids_n_702276.html.
