BATAVIA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Six Flags Darien Lake announced Wednesday that it donated 500 rain ponchos to NY State Veterans’ Home in Batavia.

The facility’s staff will use the ponchos to protect themselves and patients as they provide care to local veterans during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Everyone is feeling the effects of COVID-19 and we at Six Flags Darien Lake want to do our part to help ensure members of our community are safe and healthy,” said Park President Chris Thorpe. “Being able to assist the hard-working men and women who are on the front lines caring for veterans is an honor and a privilege.”
