State Grant to Fund Community Center Upgrade

By Lisa Litzinger

Buffalo, NY – The North Buffalo Community Center will soon undergo improvements.

State Assemblyman Sam Hoyt was on hand Monday to present the center with a $50,000 state grant. He says the money will be used to install a new gym floor, bleachers and a ventilation system.

Hoyt says neighborhood residents depend on the center's services.

"This center provides housing and senior services, it provides athletic programs, youth programs, senior lunches, and much, much more," Hoyt said. "As a result of the services provided here, the people of North Buffalo in my opinion have a significantly improved quality of life."

Hoyt says the grant will also be used to pay for the weatherproofing of the entire Sanders Road facility.
