​First Source Federal Credit Union recently presented a $10,000 check to The Genesis Group to help fund educational efforts and outreach in our community.
The money will aid in student career day and college-preparedness opportunities, recognition and awards for area educators, student and area business collaborations and more.
"The Genesis Group is grateful to First Source Federal Credit Union for its very generous contribution,” said Raymond J. Durso, Jr., Executive Director of The Genesis Group. “We appreciate their continued support of our mission each year, especially their dedication for projects and events in the area of education. First Source is focused on providing educational opportunities, and we are grateful to partner with them in this initiative."
Founded originally as Utica Teachers Federal Credit Union, First Source gives back to the community in many different ways with education as a primary focus whenever possible.
“The Genesis Group is continually involved in positive initiatives for our community,” said Mike Parsons Chief Executive Officer of First Source FCU. “We are pleased to help fund the educational portion of their efforts in 2018.”
