Statement from Danny Wegman, CEO, Wegmans Food Markets, Inc.:

“The Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection has a proven track record of changing the course of lives and breaking the cycle of poverty.  Our offer still stands;  the Wegman Family Charitable Foundation will match any dollars Buffalo Public Schools bring forward to support Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection this year and over the next two school years, up to a total of $1,000,000.

We have matched $105,000 to date, and it is my hope that Buffalo Public Schools will take advantage of what remains.”
