ROC the Day

On December 11 local Geneva nonprofits will be participating in ROC the Day.  Organized by the United Way of Greater Rochester, ROC the Day is a 24-hour, online event that provides individuals an opportunity to support nonprofit organizations in the Great Rochester area.   The concept is simple, on December 11 go to and fill a “shopping cart” with the charities you wish to support.  Last year ROC the Day raised over $875,000 for Rochester area nonprofits. 

This year, Geneva nonprofits are collaborating together.   Between 9 am and 6 pm on December 11 we invite community members to the Smith Opera House to see the great work being done by Geneva nonprofits, enjoy free entertainment and refreshments, and donate-on site.   Participating nonprofits are 

Boys and Girls Club of Geneva/ Geneva Community Center
Child & Family Resources
Family Counseling Service of the Finger Lakes  
Foundation for the Geneva Public Library
Geneva Center of Concern/Geneva Food Pantry
Geneva Community Lunch Program
Geneva Community Projects: Geneva Dog Park
Geneva Family YMCA
Geneva General Day Care
Geneva Historical Society
Geneva Reads
Geneva Theatre Guild
Literacy Volunteers of Ontario-Yates
Lockland School
The Smith Opera House
Success for Geneva’s Children
Thrive to Survive

Whether it’s at the Smith Opera House or, on December 11 please consider becoming a ROCstar and make a difference right here in Geneva.
