Volunteering at 2016 CASA Event

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and the Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA) of East Texas held its annual auction event at the Green Acres Baptist Church Crosswalk last evening. This also marks CASA’s 25th anniversary, and this year’s theme: Justice is Served. For the CASA for Kids of East Texas 2016 Justice is Served event, Genesis provided manpower and technology at the auction payment tables. In typical Genesis fashion, we worked hard and had a lot of fun. The event raised funds to further the work of CASA and its volunteers.

3rd Annual Chili Cookoff Benefit

Our 3rd Annual Chili Cook Off went well and relatively injury free! Why have a chili cook off? We did it to raise money as well as collect canned goods for the East Texas Food Bank.

To date, there are over 456,000 East Texans who are at risk of hunger — many of whom are children and the elderly. In 2014, the Food Bank provided 20,200,000 meals to people right in our own backyard.
