GC Interagency Council raises more than $600 for scholarships for Human Services studies
The Genesee County Interagency Council met for its December meeting on Wednesday (Dec. 18th). At the meeting as part of a coffee sale fundraiser, members raised $631.75 toward scholarships that will go to students living in Genesee County interested in going into the field of Human Services.
In celebration of the holidays, members wore ugly sweaters, on purpose of course, and other festive attire. Presents were given to the best dressed and to some other lucky winners as well.
The fun did not stop there -- students from Batavia Flute Duet, Batavia Beautyshop Ensemble, Batavia High School Saxophone Ensemble, and BHS Carolers played music for attendees.
The purpose of the Genesee County Interagency Council is to provide a place where people interested in the positive growth of Genesee County residents to network and share updates.
Members are also part of an online LISTSERV by which if a member has a client with a need the membership can provide them with resources.
New members are always welcome and our membership is diverse from human service agencies to health insurance companies as well as other community advocates.
General membership meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 12 p.m. at the Arc Community Building at 38 Woodrow Road, Batavia.
