Buffalo children have a terrific opportunity

I hope a Feb. 16 writer was joking with his letter commenting on how nice it was for private citizens to step in for Clarence students wishing to participate in after-school clubs and sports. He asked if there will be any opportunities for the children in his community of Buffalo.

I believe there already are – to the tune of the tens of millions of dollars raised by folks at Say Yes Buffalo. Did he somehow miss the full-page advertisements and all of the news coverage? Did he somehow miss the totally free college opportunities extended to these students simply because of where they live? Will it ever be enough for some people?
