Variety WNY has several on-going programs to benefit children in WNY:

Variety at Work – This program is an integral aspect of Variety whose activities include a night at a Bison’s game, a Christmas party, and other activities for hundreds of children.

Variety Camping Program  – Variety sponsors 50 “camperships” each summer and sends children ages 8-16 to Cradle Beach Summer Camp in Angola, NY. The program gets children from low-income families and children with physical and behavioral needs outdoors for a week and provides them an opportunity that they would never have without Variety.

Variety Mobility Program – Variety purchases adaptive bikes for children’s agencies to provide to children with special needs. While the bikes provide much-needed physical therapy for these children, they also allow the children the positive mental boost of riding a bike like their  friends. Some of these children are able to experience riding a bike for the very first time thanks to Variety.
