The Valley Community Association, which operates the Valley Community Center serving the Valley community in South Buffalo, received a grant from the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo to support their “Striving for Excellence” Art Program. The “Striving For Excellence” after-school program serves 170 young people from across the city of Buffalo, providing academic and social enrichment opportunities, including physical recreation, homework help, computers, and art. This grant will allow more students to participate in the art program, and it will enable the art students to participate in the annual “Art Alive” event at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Congratulations, Valley!
