Who We Are
The Boys and Girls Club of Cheektowaga’s vision is to provide a safe after school environment for the children of Cheektowaga that will help develop career readiness, reduce crime and juvenile delinquency and provide affordable and quality childcare.
Despite unprecedented challenges in 2020, the committee was able to secure both state funds and donations from local, private business sponsors to reach over $300,000 of our $500,000 goal. This accomplishment will help cover operating expenses and allow the club to open in September 2021.

The Town of Cheektowaga has offered free use of the Alexander Community Center, a town-owned former school building. State Assemblywoman Monica Wallace secured $250,000 in state funds for needed improvements to the building, and an additional $100,000 in funding for operations which is committed to be paid over three years.
