Erie County Legislature’s Minority Leader John J. Mills announces that the Legislature approved the 2013 Summer Primetime Funding at the June 6, 2013 session. Included in this year’s funding package is $10,000, each, for Cradle Beach Camp in Angola, Boys & Girls Club of Orchard Park and Boys & Girls Club of Eden.

 

“The funding is significant to these organizations that offer programming to our youths during the summer months. The funds are used in a variety of ways to offer camps or activities that provide adult supervision and structured programs. These are outstanding facilities that benefit many young people and I am pleased they will once again be able to provide summer programs,” said Minority Leader Mills.

 

The following organizations that benefit the entire county will also receive Summer Primetime funding: the Greater Niagara Frontier Council – Boy Scouts; Girl Scouts of WNY; Be-A-Friend - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County; Buffalo Museum of Science; WNY United Against Drugs & Alcohol Abuse; and others.

 

Determination of Primetime Funding is coordinated through the Department of Social Services and the final proposal is requested by the County Executive’s Office.
