The Boys & Girls Club of Erie County has received multiple reports in recent days of a group trying to scam local residents by claiming to represent the organization.
Adults and children are canvassing local neighborhoods pretending to be from the club and asking for donations.
This group is in no way affiliated with the Boys and Girls Club of Erie County. The Club never allows children in their program to solicit money.
“We never send kids out into the community as part of any fundraiser,” said Craig Wood, Board President of the Boys & Girls Club of Erie County. “Part of our responsibility is teaching them to be safe in their community. Sending them out to ask for money contradicts that purpose.”
