Assemblyman Dave DiPietro (R,C,I-East Aurora) has been traveling around the 147th AD to deliver hand sanitizer to youth summer groups such as the Elma, Marilla, and Wales Boys and Girls Club. DiPietro has joined with Jeff Souder, board member, and Tracey Karp-Thiel, executive director of the Elma, Marilla, and Wales Boys and Girls Club, to donate eight gallons of hand sanitizer to the group so their summer programs can continue to be state compliant and safe.
Our kids have lost so much due to the COVID-19 pandemic and giving them back some aspect of a normal summer is critically important, DiPietro said. They deserve the opportunity to enjoy their childhood as best they can, and if theres anything we can do to ensure they have that spark of magic back while still being safe and healthy, than I think were duty bound to do so. The Elma, Marilla, and Wales Boys and Girls Club is a phenomenal organization and I am so proud to help them give our children their summer back.
