The Buffalo City Mission has been a wonderful way to teach my children how to give back in a meaningful way. We have been volunteering for Thanksgiving & an occasional Christmas meal for the past 7 years. I wanted a way to give my teenage daughters a sense of helping others since they were not inclined to go to church with me. The mission truly helped us as much as helping people get their lives back on track. The people of the city mission do God's work and show God's love for so many people. Being apart of their holiday efforts is a lot of work but so much joy comes from it.
The Buffalo City Mission is passionate about meeting the needs of the homeless in Buffalo! They are dedicated to getting to know their clients personally and accommodating for their specific needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, education and training, and life skills. All of the needs are met by the Sovereign Provision of God, and it is truly amazing to see so many people work together with genuine love for the clients.
I have donated clothes and supplies many time as well as organizing drives at work. I ahve also worked through my church serving thanksgivign dinner and that was a wonderful experience.
I've donated to this organization for years. Initially with clothing and food donations to help the homeless here in cold and snowy Buffalo. But then I found out they do so much more. They organize the preparation and delivery of food to thousands on Thanksgiving and Christmas day, they shelter and take care of homeless families, protect women and children at their Cornerstone Manor facility and much more. Once you take a tour of their facilitiy you will be blown away. They truly do God's work.
