One Stop Employees collect over 85 Easter Baskets for Local Families in Need

CEO Angella Luyk put the word out to her friends that she wanted to help families in need and would they donate an Easter Basket. 85 baskets later, CFO Harry Powell agreed to dress up as the Easter Bunny to hand them out.

One Stop joins forces with IBERO-American Action League to collect Mid Year School Supplies.

IBERO is building stronger families of all backgrounds in Rochester through its personalized work with each member of the family unit. Our educational programs target children, youth, parents and individuals with developmental disabilities. Just as we promote self-sufficiency, we as a nonprofit have also implemented new initiatives for our own self-sufficiency. These include our new Fee-for-Service Program and the upcoming launch of 97.1 El Poder; the first and only 24-hour Spanish radio station in Rochester.

As a dual-language human services agency, we teach individuals of all backgrounds how to become self-sufficient. Through hands-on learning, we help children, youth, families and individuals with special needs transition into the classroom, the workforce and the community. Their programs are offered in both English and Spanish and have received numerous awards.

One Stop teams up with Ronald McDonald house to donate Easter Baskets to the families staying at the house.

Families are stronger when they are together, and their presence helps a sick child heal faster and cope better. While Ronald McDonald House Charities® cannot make medicine taste better or take away painful treatments, we can help lessen the burden and ensure families have the stability and resources to keep their child healthy and happy. Last year, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester, NY, supported more than 900 families and children, all because of the love and generous donations of our donors and volunteers.

One Stop employees wanted to do something nice for local families. We wanted to give parents a chance to brag about their children. We sent out a Facebook message asking parents to tell us why their child is amazing. We received an overwhelming response. We chose one boy and one girl to receive a back pack full of school supplies.

RESOLVE – “Domestic Violence Stinks”

RESOLVE of Greater Rochester Inc. is heightening its efforts to raise awareness in the community and on college campuses throughout the month of October by declaring “Domestic Violence Stinks” across the front of purple-painted wooden outhouses.

Bottom line is Domestic Violence Stinks. It happens behind closed doors and is often a terrible secret; when the reality is 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be affected by domestic violence and 1 in 4 college females will be sexually assaulted before graduation.”

This whimsical campaign for a serious cause strives to draw attention to a frightening topic in a non-threatening way and to foster open dialog about the prevalence of domestic violence in our community; particularly in the suburbs, where more than half of all incidents are reported.

The goal of the campaign is to acknowledge that domestic violence happens in every neighborhood; and to let people who may be suffering in silence know that they are not alone. Community members are invited to show their support by hosting the outhouses on their front lawn or businesses and by making a donation to RESOLVE, which develops and delivers innovative solutions that address domestic violence and sexual assault.
