The holiday season is a special time at Hearts where we have several opportunities to share the joy of the season with our neighbors. It is also a time that many individuals and groups partner with us to volunteer their time and donations to show kindness to those in need throughout the City of Buffalo.
In the week leading up to Christmas, Hearts provided turkeys and hams to clients who were in need of a Christmas Day meal. Throughout the week, we also provided toys to families in need of Christmas gifts for their children.
Hearts provided Christmas dinners of ham with pineapple, mashed potatoes, greens, stuffing, and delicious Christmas cookies to both shelters that we are partnered with at Holy Cross and on Genesee St.
Christmas Eve Dinner
We partnered again with the Buffalo Dream Center on Christmas Eve to provide a hot meal and a wide array of homemade Christmas cookies donated by many volunteer bakers in the area! The food that was donated towards this particular dinner allowed all the diners to partake in seconds which doesn’t typically happen. The generosity of those who donated towards the Christmas Eve dinner left everyone who attended feeling full and abundantly blessed!
