Buffalo Bills help out community with a clean-up day

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Bills helped out local parks Friday during a community clean-up day.

Volunteers from the organization teamed up for the fourth year in a row to clean up local parks. Friday they focused on Delaware Park with the Olmsted Parks Conservancy.

Players were busy at One Bills drive practicing, but team representatives on the scene say it’s part of a master plan by Terry and Kim Pegula.

“They are so committed to this community, and it’s not just talking about it,” Scott Berchtold, senior vice president of communications, said. “You can see it, the physical things that we’re doing. You can see it and it’s Terry and Kim behind it.”

The new Executive Director of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy Stephanie Crockatt says the help makes a huge difference.

“It’s amazingly helpful because our crews are only 100 people managing 850 acres, so having this type of corporate support is huge. It’s invaluable,” Crockatt said.
