BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown will receive 50 laptops and $8,500 from Spectrum Monday on behalf of the Buffalo Police Athletic League or PAL.
Mayor Brown is the chairperson for the Buffalo Police Athletic League.
A spokesperson for Mayor Brown says the laptops will go to PAL's summer camp participants to help them continue online learning activities at home.
“I thank Spectrum for this generous donation that will support PAL summer camp participants as they learn from home to stay safe as we continue to recover from the COVID-19 emergency,” said Mayor Brown. “These laptops and school supplies reinforce our strong commitment to youth, to their education and to our goal of making sure that no one is left out or left behind in our diverse, equitable and inclusive community. By investing in our youth, we are investing in the future of our community.”
Spectrum is also donating 50 backpacks filled with school supplies to Buffalo PAL youth enrolled in a virtual educational camp this summer.
That donation will take place Monday at 11 a.m. at the Machnica Community Center on Clinton Street.
