Bills owner Ralph Wilson donates $1 million to adult care

Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson and wife Mary today announced a $1 million donation through the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation to support adult day care and home care in western New York.

Mary Wilson presented the gift to James R. Kaskie, president and CEO of Kaleida Health, at the DeGraff Memorial Hospital Adult Day Care Center.

“I want to thank the Wilsons for their generosity,” said Kaskie. “Their compassion and caring will directly impact our adult day care patients as well as those we serve in home care.”

The Ralph C. Wilson Foundation has contributed more than $11 million to support medical care and research.

“It is an honor to support Kaleida Health and the tremendous work it does to provide care for the residents of the Buffalo-Niagara region,” Ralph Wilson said. “We hope to make a positive impact on the quality of people’s lives today, particularly during a time of so much need.”

The funding will be used to subsidize the cost of attendance and transportation to the adult day care program. It will also provide for programs and purchases of equipment and supplies and will assist Kaleida Health’s home care program, the Visiting Nursing Association.
