The recent Pints & Pads Happy Hour, in partnership with Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York’s REAL Program and AmeriCorps Alums Buffalo, raised 80 boxes of pads and tampons and over $135 for personal care products to benefit Send Hunger Packing. On Monday, March 28th from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm, volunteers are needed to pack bags of trail mix and to create personal care packages for those in need. We will be meeting at United Way (742 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14209) to prepare the food and personal care packages. We’d like to thank Senator Tim Kennedy, Target on Walden Ave., and BJs Wholesale Club on Sheridan for their generous donations to purchase food and personal care products for Send Hunger Packing.
In the past, we have partnered with Friends of Night People, Seneca Babcock Community Center, and Code Blue Relief Mission. For our 3rd annual Send Hunger Packing event, we will partner with Harbor House Drop-In Center, which is open 365 nights a year to provide food, supplies, and services for those in need.
