Record cold temperatures have gripped the entire Northeast and Buffalo has certainly had our share of the frigid, sub-zero temperatures over the last couple of weeks. There are many in our area that need your help to try to stay warm.

Common Council President, Darius Pridgen has put out a request to have coats and jackets donated to those in need.

"It’s in your closet, it’s in the attic saying “let me keep someone warm”. We can help fulfill with request of your gently used or new coat, hat and gloves. Staff is standing by at the church until 4pm, on their day off, to receive your donation. I know WNY will come through like always."
