ALBION – A local business is accepting school supply donations to help Community Action of Orleans & Genesee with its annual push for pencils, pens, crayons, notebooks and other supplies.

Albion Agencies will accept the supplies at its 30 North Main St. location. The business is promoting the event in its quarterly email newsletter as well as on social media.

The effort has resulted in many donations from employees, customers and other community members. That allowed Albion Agencies to collect a substantial donation for Community Action to distribute to local learners in early August to get them prepped for the upcoming 2015-2016 school year.

Albion Agencies, with roots going back 170 years, is teaming up with Community Action, an agency celebrating its 50th year in 2015.

Community members are welcome to drop off items at Albion Agencies, or at Community Action’s site at 409 East State St. Call Community Action at (585) 589-5605 for more information.
