Jim Kelly distributes $180K in grants

BLASDELL, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Kelly for Kids Foundation scored some big points for local charities on Monday.

Jim Kelly distributed $180,000 in grants during a luncheon at Ilio DiPaolo’s restaurant in Blasdell. The funding supports organizations that help disadvantaged and disabled youth in our area.

“When you hand a check to an organization for $2,500, to some that might not seems like a lot, but to some organizations it make a difference with a lot of kids,” Kelly said.

Money was raised at the annual Jim Kelly Celebrity Classic.
