One of the oldest food pantries in Western New York and a local church are bringing a gospel music concert back to Buffalo to help uplift and inspire people in the aftermath of the mass shooting that happened last year.

The Buffalo STILL Standing Relief Concert, which is now in its 2nd year, is organized by the Upper Room COGIC in Buffalo's Historic Hamlin Park neighborhood. Organizers hope to promote joy, healing, and feelings of resilience on the eastside and all over Western New York.
