Official of GCCOA lets members know food, funds for assistance available for anyone in need
(CCN) — An e-mail went out to members of the Genesee County Coaches & Officials Association this week that help is available for anyone in need.
Chris Vergison of the GCCOA wrote an e-mail that said, "I wanted to make everyone aware of a service available to any and all persons that may be in need of food during this difficult time. Multiple charitable donations have made available food products at various pickup locations, in conjunction with the United Way. To do so, call (810) 257-3422 and acquire an ID# that you would then take to the pickup location, with various pickup locations around the county. It's been told to me that these food pickup locations are overwhelming with the amount of food available."
Vergison added that as a reminder, the GCCOA has funds available for other means to assist members. "Please do not hesitate to reach out," he said.
The GCCOA is one of the longest-serving approved associations for officials in the state. The local group now counts more than 400 members and is a non-profit organization supported by coaches and officials across Genesee County. It was one of the first approved associations for officials by the Michigan High School Athletic Association which began in 1924.

Risks of cheating on your wife range from embarrassing your family to maybe catching disease or maybe catching a 'crazy'
"Regret is not rape," Frank Manley told jurors during Thursday's opening statement in the unjust rape and kidnapping charge against Mateen Cleaves.
The above "unjust" description is putting it mildly about the case against the former all-state basketball star from the old Flint Northern High School who went on to become an All-American at Michigan State before playing on four NBA teams and then playing professionally overseas. Cleaves, who led MSU to its last national championship in 2000, was a national TV analyst for NCAA basketball at the time of his arrest as March Madness began in 2015. He was arrested for an incident that took place in September of 2015.
"She wanted a celebrity hook-up," Manley insisted about a beautiful woman in her mid-20's who got drunk at a Grand Blanc Township bar after a charity golf outing and got into a vehicle four years ago with Cleaves, now 41. The ride ended at a motel in Mundy Township. Video evidence will show this so-called victim fixing her hair in the mirror on the passenger side visor as Cleaves went inside to pay for a room. He left the car engine running, which kinda makes kidnapping go out the window in my book. READ MORE
