Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo serves over 8,000 youths in Western New York every year. The “2 Pack a Backpack” initiative provides local children with school supplies that they could not normally afford. The supplies will make a great difference for thousands of children just in time for the new school year. Anthony Baldi & Associates, a financial advisory practice of Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., is partnering with the Bisons yet again to promote this worthy cause.
