Summer Play Packs to be Distributed to Families on August 8
Drive Through Event to Give Free Play Packs to Buffalo Youth

The Allentown Association is proud to partner with Project Play WNY, The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and Victory Sports to provide FREE Summer Play Packs to youth who reside in the City of Buffalo on Saturday, August 8 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon or when Play Packs run out, whichever comes first.

The drive through distribution will be held at First Presbyterian Church, located at One Symphony Circle in Buffalo.  The drive through entrance will be on Pennsylvania Street at Symphony Circle across from Kleinhans Music Hall.

200 Play Packs will be given away on a first come, first served basis. The Play Packs include sports and play items to keep our youth active and moving this summer.  There is no charge for the play packs.

With community centers, recreation centers and organized sports canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important that children go outside and engage in play in order to exercise and promote healthy activity. Play Packs will help to ensure that low income families have equipment to facilitate play and exercise.

This is a drive-through event.  To ensure safety for all participants, families are asked to remain in cars at all times.  Each person in the car is asked to wear a face covering/mask when volunteers approach the vehicle to hand a family a play pack. There is a limit of one play pack per vehicle regardless of the number of youth or households in a car.

Summer Play Pack distribution is limited to City of Buffalo Residents, with a focus on families on the West Side of Buffalo.  Families may be asked to show a proof of City residence.

Play Packs are donated by Project Play WNY, the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and Victory Sports.  The Allentown Association, Inc. is coordinating the distribution.
