About Hambone Express

For over 20 years, Hambone Express has been serving those in need in WNY by providing home-cooked Christmas meals. In correlation with Meals on Wheels of WNY, the Buffalo City Mission is able to deliver over 4,000 meals each Christmas morning to individuals who either cannot make meals for themselves, or do not have the funds to do so. Here at the Mission, it is our goal to show the love of Jesus Christ to the homeless and hurting in Western New York, and we take part in doing so to those outside of our facility during our Hambone Express event.

Looking for a way that you can give back this Christmas season? Take time to review the below volunteer opportunities that you and your loved ones can experience this season. Call us today at (716) 854-8181 x419 and x408 as opportunities fill up quickly for this event.


Christmas Volunteer and Gift Donation Needs

Christmas Gifts are needed for the men, women and children. Christmas can be a difficult for many of our residents. We seek to bring Christmas joy by providing a few gifts for each man, woman and child. If you are able to help meet this need we look forward to hearing from you.

Christmas gift sorters are needed starting December 9th to December 13th and December 16th to December 18th. The available shifts daily are 9:00am to 11:30am and 12:30pm to 3:00pm to help sort and organize the gift donations for the women and children of Cornerstone Manor. Make a difference and join the festivities.


Cleanup help is needed after the fun on Christmas Day on December 26th and 27th from 9:00am to 11:30am to tidy up Cornerstone Manor.

Please contact the Volunteer Department for questions and to register
for the above volunteer positions and needs at 854-8181 x419 and x408.
