Random Acts of Kindness at GCC

Standard

Lauren Paisley, Business professor at GCC, and three Entrepreneurial students recently presented the Foundation with a $500 donation toward the Title III Challenge Grant. This donation will be matched dollar for dollar and will go towards scholarships for GCC students in financial need, making a total of $1,000.

As a part of Genesee Community College’s Random Acts of Kindness Week (#GCCRAK) in April, students Abby Wilcox, Brittany Keyes, and Christine Furmanek collected change at GCC from students, faculty, and staff. After the $500 donation to the Title III Challenge Grant, the remaining proceeds – $85 – was donated to Genesee Community College’s Food Pantry.

In an effort to promote year-round kindness, the students encourage the use of #GCCRAK on all social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
