ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Boys and Girls Club of Rochester is getting a big help from Taco Bell.

The Taco Bell Foundation announced on Monday that it will give the organization more than $21,000 to support club members and families.

The money will go toward programs such as character development, education and career information, and health and life skills. The goal is to inspire the next generation of leaders.

“They’ve been supporting especially our teen efforts, all of our workforce development, career exploration, all of those things happen because of the support we get from Taco Bell and from the managers of many Taco Bell stores in Rochester,” said Dwayne Mahoney, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester.

The Taco Bell Foundation is divvying out $7 million to youth-serving organizations around the country.
