Ever Wonder How The Genesis Center

Began and Continues to Exist and Serve?

All Thanks to GOD! "All Things Come From You Lord

And To Our Volunteers, Donors and Partners.

The Margaret L. Wendt Foundation

Philanthropist Margaret L. Wendt was the daughter of William and Mary Geis Wendt. Her father was one of the founders of the Buffalo Forge Company.  In 1957, the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation was created for charitable purposes. To this day, the Foundation, in Margaret’s name, continues to help organizations across our area.

St. Simon's Episcopal Church

St. Simon's Episcopal Church purchased the old bar on Seneca St. for about $35,000 at auction. This effort was the brainchild of mainly two parishioners. Both prefer to remain anonymous. Finally a grant was secured from "The Margaret L. Wendt Foundation". Later a grant was awarded by The Episcopal Diocese of WNY.

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church Orchard Park

St. Mark's parishioners regularly collects food for us and periodically donates a portion of their outreach funds.

People Inc.

What fun people. Disabilities... Yes. But that doesn't stop them from wanting to help a neighbor. They always bring us fresh baked goods right from their kitchen. They brighten our days and are good examples for all of us.

St. Teresa's R.C. Church

We can always count on St. Teresa's and their parishioners for donations of anything from food, gifts for families at Christmas time, and not to forget Rev. James B. Cunningham, Pastor, for blankets many of which he makes himself.

If it were not for Northridge Nursery, we would not have beautiful plants on Seneca St. in spring and summer. Thank you for your gifts of beauty.
