The financially beleaguered YWCA of Genesee County has put its North Street building up for sale.
The building has been home to YW for the 50 years.
In a statement released yesterday, YW Executive Director Millie Tomidy-Pepper said the building will be sold or fully leased out.
If leased, she expects the YW would remain in the building as a tenant.
Earlier this year the YW was forced to suspend some of its programming and find other providers for the services.
Among those programs were the YW’s School Daycare and Crisis Hot-Line.
The statement went on to say that the agency needs to shift its focus from building maintenance to its core mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.
Watch out where you leave your wallet.
State Police say a man accidentally left his wallet on the counter at the TA truck stop in Pembroke.
When he returned to get it, $103 was missing.
Video showed, sure enough, another man helped himself to the cash.
Troopers say he was identified as 38 year old Matthew Hyland of Canandaigua. He was arrested for Petty Larceny.
An effort is underway to raise money for two horse trainers after a barn fire at an equestrian facility killed 28 horses. The fire broke out at the Mount Hope Training Center in Orange County early Saturday morning. Police are considering lightning as a possible cause.
