CoL 2018 – Buffalo Promise Neighborhood

Each holiday season, members of B Team Buffalo organize a grassroots event called City of Light. The goal of the initiative is to decorate a neighborhood in the city so that it shines for the holidays. Volunteers spend time decorating the streets and adding a sparkling touch to houses in the neighborhood. B Team Buffalo also hosts a free winter carnival for the families in the community, providing the neighborhood children with gifts from Santa, games, prizes, crafts, and a community dinner. We also gather the residents and volunteers together for a celebration and tree-lighting ceremony.

We are thrilled to partner with Buffalo Promise Neighborhood for our 11th annual City of Light happening on Saturday, December 8th! Over 100 B Team volunteers will decorate homes and parks in Buffalo Promise Neighborhood and create a winter wonderland carnival for children in the area to attend at Highgate Heights School.
