Three Western New York schools in need will soon have some much needed sports equipment. It’s all thanks to Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and Victory Sports on Transit Road.

The program is based off a charity drive Sanders started when he played for the Denver Broncos, but had to pause due to COVID.

He says he's happy to get it started back up again and support Western New York kids in need. Sanders says it was a program like this that got him into sports and he hopes the program spreads a positive message.

"Teaching the future generation about giving, about not just being me, me, me," he said. "It’s about spreading positive energy and trying to make the world a better place."

Next up for the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation is a benefit starring up-and-coming country singer Jon Langston, which will take place on December 10.
