Boys and Girls Clubs of Rochester making spirits bright


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Boys and Girls Clubs of Rochester will host its Breakfast with Santa for members at its Genesee Street location on Saturday, December 14 from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m.

Club members are encouraged to RSVP at the front desk.

Executive Director Dwayne Mahoney discussed the annual event Wednesday during News 8 at Sunrise.

“It’s always a good opportunity for us to connect with all of our families, but also give out a bunch of toys to some well-deserving kids – our Club members – so we’re looking forward to it,” said Mahoney. “As with every year, we’re reaching out to the community to go to some of the locations that we have toy boxes in the community, every place from like AT&T to Buffalo Wild Wings. There are a number of places that currently have toy boxes and we’re asking people to fill them with toys so that we can make sure that we get toys to everybody we possibly can.”
