Gloversville, NY: The Family Counseling Center of Fulton County has become a hub for community health – both mental health and general wellbeing. The newly renovated building on Broadway in Gloversville, has hosted multiple community health events since opening in 2021. The organization also provides on-site pharmacy services through their partnership with Genoa Healthcare.
Red Cross Blood Drive
The Family Counseling Center will host a community blood drive on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The blood-drive comes at a time when healthcare systems are in desperate need of donations. Appointments are still available and may be made here: https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/donation-time
“We are astounded by the amazing community health partners who have scheduled events with The Family Counseling Center,” said Peter Lawrence, Deputy Executive Director at The Family Counseling Center. “Our Events Center was designed to be a hub of community activity, health, and education. The ability to have a central location in downtown Gloversville for outreach events such as the vaccine clinics and blood drives is a boon to the community as a whole. We look forward to offering more events such as these and working with more partners.”
