MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The National Parkinson Foundation Western New York Chapter benefited recently from some generous Western New York youths.
Marissa and Dylan Birzon, 13-year-old twins who are in seventh grade at Transit Middle School, raised $50 dollars selling chocolate-covered pretzels at a garage sale and donated another $200 of their own money to NPFWNY.
Also, Blake Kurdziel, a fifth-grader at Nativity of Our Lord School in Orchard Park, led a group of classmates in making a variety of items out of duct tape. The group raised $48 through the sale of their hand-made items and donated it to NPFWNY.
