This holiday Toy Drive was founded by Michaela Kowalick in 2007. Donations have helped children through the Saint Christopher Parish Outreach Program, Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, Haven House of Buffalo, and WNY Heroes. Throughout the past eight years, thousands of gifts have been delivered to local children for the holidays. Please help us spread the word! No one wants to have a child feel left out during the holiday season. Now is your chance to give back to your community and our hometown heroes. “The mission of WNY Heroes is to provide veterans, members of the armed services, and the widows and children of deceased veterans with access to essential services, financial assistance and resources that support their lives and sustain their dignity.” For more information about Western New York Heroes, please visit their website www.wnyheroes.org.
