Due to the sustained extreme cold weather, Buffalo City Mission has provided shelter and food for people in need through a record number of “Code Blue’s” this winter. When a Code Blue is issued, it means that the cold is life-threatening to anyone living on the streets, and warming centers like Buffalo City Mission remain open to receive folks in need of shelter and food. Buffalo City Mission’s supplies are critically low and nearly exhausted on many items that they need to help the homeless through the dangerously cold weather. Please consider picking up a few extra items for them with your shopping this weekend and having your small group or friends do so as well. A list of critical needs is provided below. Further information is available at buffalocitymission.org/current-and-urgent-needs.
Urgently Needed Items
- Men’s Hats and Gloves
- Travel Size Personal Care Products (individual items or kits)
- Shampoo, washcloths, soap, razors, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste
- Diced tomatoes and tomato sauce
- Any non-perishable food items
