Clarence schools get $33,000 grant to restore activities

The Clarence Schools Enrichment Foundation, is donating nearly $33,000 to the Clarence Central School Board of Education for the reinstatement of six high school clubs, four middle school clubs and one middle school sport.

The foundation, a nonprofit formed to keep enrichment programs in the Clarence schools, began a $200,000 Restoration Initiative when voters rejected the initial 2013-14 school budget failed and the district eliminated nearly 60 extracurricular sports and clubs.

So far, the foundation has given more than $70,000 to restore 14 extracurricular clubs and six sports teams, according to Victor Martucci, president of the foundation’s board.

A list of activities still without funding can be found at the foundation’s website,

Martucci said the group will continue its fundraising efforts to reach its goal of $200,000. As part of its campaign, Brennan’s restaurant will continue to donate 10 percent of every food bill to the foundation and the Kick Start Clarence Homecoming Carnival is Oct. 5,

Donations also are accepted through its website or can be mailed to CSEF Inc., PO Box 37, Clarence, NY 14031.
