Boys & Girls Clubs

The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Davidson County and Buffalo Wild Wings, at the 1519 E. Innes St. in Salisbury, are changing the game for kids and teens across the country.

Anytime during October, guests can offer donations at the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant to support local Boys & Girls Clubs sports programs. Guests will receive a coupon for a free Hatch Queso with a $5 donation, or a pinup with a $1 donation, as part of the Buffalo Wild Wings Team Up for Kids initiative.

This initiative helps bring sports into the lives of kids and teens who need it most, helping them be part of a team and learn sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership skills. Guests can also support their local club by adding a personal donation to their guest check if desired.
