Ways You Can Help
Donate blood. Area hospitals still need blood for their patients during this crisis. For more information on how blood donation sites are accommodating new guidelines and where to donate, visit the American Red Cross or Connectlife.
Area food banks are in need of supplies and meals, as people remain at home and donations from restaurants and businesses have decreased or disappeared. Check out Food Bank of WNY, Feedmore WNY and the Buffalo City Mission for more information on how and where to safely donate food.
Volunteer. While many of us are staying home, others do not have a home to go to. Buffalo City Mission is seeking volunteers under the age of 60 without underlying health issues to serve where needed, while Hearts for the Homeless has opened Code-19 shelters in response to this pandemic. More information on how you can help can be found at Buffalo City Mission or Hearts for the Homeless.
