Two more buildings in Western New York will now bear the name of former Buffalo Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.

On Friday, the foundation created by the sale of the Bills announced a $4.2 million donation to Kaleida Health for the organization’s adult day services.

Kaleida’s two adult day service facilities, one in Amherst and the other in North Tonawanda, will both be renamed to Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Adult Day Services.

Mary Wilson, the wife of the late Bills owner, said, “Ralph cared deeply about the importance of what Kaleida Health means to the Western New York region and was particularly passionate about ensuring a place for seniors and adults in need of health and nutritional services. We hope that today’s donation will be an important piece in continuing to provide that level of care.”

The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation has already given away millions of dollars in Buffalo, putting just a small dent in the $1.2 billion that will be used for charitable purposes.
