Western New Yorkers still need your help. Your donation helps support those organizations on the front lines of the crisis. Donate today at WNYresponds.org.

[Over the past 3 months Riveter has contributed to the development of the WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund. So far, the fund has distributed *$6.8 MILLION* to local essential organizations. Now, it's time for us to share with WNY how YOUR DONATIONS have helped. Story 2/6.]

Please join us in celebrating our May Employees of the Month … Brandi & Linda.

Brandi Gills has been with us since 2016, she started as a Youth Development Professional (YDP) and worked her way up to Lead YDP at Elmwood Village Charter School. Brandi transferred to Eggertsville where she continued to show leadership skills and a team player attitude and was promoted to the Assistant Director position. Always willing to jump in where needed, Brandi helped Shari, our CEO, get the Masten Clubhouse cleaned, sanitized, wiped down, and painted after the renovations were completed.

Linda Spears works at our Butler Mitchell Clubhouse and has been with us since October of 2019. Linda really stepped up when we needed her the most, along with Shari and Brandi Linda helped our Masten Clubhouse get cleaned, organized and ready to open next week for our summer program. She is a hardworking, passionate and dedicated employee. We are so thankful to our May Employees of the month!
