Buffalo City Mission Plants Seeds of Hope to the Impoverished in Buffalo
With a Successful Easter Celebration
BUFFALO, NEW YORK – Today, the Buffalo City Mission fed more than 200 hungry and hurting Western New Yorkers at their Annual Easter Community Meal. Buffalo City Mission staff and volunteers provided the meal and keepsake gifts to plant the seeds of renewal and hope in the hearts of those who desperately need it and who would not otherwise receive an Easter celebration.
The City Mission would like to thank all of the donors who gave and assisted in the providing meals, gifts, flowers, and music to once again make this year’s celebration a success, and so everyone in the Buffalo community is remembered at Easter time.
“For most, the Spring season ushers in a time of renewal, but for many in Buffalo facing difficult life challenges like hunger and poverty, Easter becomes another reminder of sorrow and loss,” said Stuart Harper, CEO and Executive Director of the Mission. “We want to change that for them because where hunger ends, hope can begin.”
Nearly 30 volunteers came from across the Buffalo area to uplift and serve hurting people. “We are so grateful for the generosity of the Buffalo community for their compassionate support. Because of them, we were able to provide a not only meal but also hope that they can overcome their present circumstances and begin again,” said Harper.
