Batavia Days Inn helps GOMOC make holiday wishes come true

By Genesee-Orleans Ministry of Concern

The Batavia Days Inn donated over 100 beds to the Genesee-Orleans Ministry of Concern furniture program.  This generous donation helped GOMOC to almost exhaust an 8 page waiting list of people in need of beds in our community.  This holiday season, many children and families will now have warm beds to sleep in. 

The GOMOC Furniture Program collects furniture donations from the commuity and distributes them to those in need.  The service is free to both the community members donating and those in need.  We accept beds, dressers, couches and chairs, kitchen tables, and working appliance. To make a donation, simply call our agency and schedule a pick-up.

The Genesee-Orleans Ministry of Concern would like to thank the Batavia Days Inn and all the other generous community members who have donated to our furniture program.
