ORLANDO, Fla. – The General Council of the Assemblies of God USA recently hosted its bi-annual meeting in Orlando, welcoming an estimated 19,000 attendees with an estimated economic impact of $48.9 million. The group donated 39 bookcases to the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), 14 of which were then re-donated to Orange County’s Great Oaks Village.
MegaCon Orlando, held at the OCCC from Aug. 12-15, also supported recent donation efforts by providing tote bags, event swag, and supplies to Great Oaks Village.
Great Oaks Village is an Orange County residential foster group home for children ages six to 18 who have been removed from their homes by the State of Florida due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment. The donation of these 14 bookcases and tote bags will allow the agency to provide additional reading and educational resources for residents.
