Stephen Tybor, III, Eight Days of Hope President and CEO, said in a press release,

“Our last EDOH Buffalo outreach was truly fulfilling, especially because we were able to impact so many people in this wonderful city that I am proud to call home. This year, we are excited to be back serving the Masten District. We can’t wait to bless this community.”

In 2019, the program helped fix up 375 homes in the University District. That give-back event was made possible by 1,500 volunteers who came to Buffalo from 32 states. This year Eight Days is partnering with Key Bank for the program.

Kawanza Humphrey, Corporate Responsibility Officer for KeyBank in Buffalo, said in a press release,

“From the opening of Northland Workforce Training Center to recent expansion at Erie County Medical Center and the opening of KeyBank’s East Delavan branch, there are so many transformative things happening in Buffalo’s Masten District and on the east side. We are proud to partner with Eight Days of Hope and bring the revitalization happening across the east side to our neighbors in the Masten District.”

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
