United Way brings people, organizations and resources together to improve community well being.
Buffalo Soccer Club collaborates with the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County to provide Soccer For Success to over 1400 children in the Buffalo Public Schools.
We also partner with them on Western New York Girls in Sports, Mary Wilson established this program for the purpose of improving the lives of girls in Buffalo through sports. Her personal love of sports, combined with her knowledge of the array of benefits for girls that are fostered through sports participation, led her to partner initially with the Buffalo Bills, and then with the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County, to bring together girls and sports. Twice a year, over 100 volunteers come together to introduce girls to sports that they may not otherwise experience, and to empower girls to have the confidence to pursue their new interests outside of the event. Not only do the girls get to try new sports, but they also learn life skills and make new friends along the way.
