Hearts Christmas Outreach

Spreading Christmas Joy This Holiday Season

This Christmas, we have different opportunities for you, your family or your group to help those in need. Getting involved with Hearts' holiday outreach can be a meaningful way to make a positive impact this Christmas season.

Bake Cookies

Calling all bakers! We need 300 dozen cookies! We're asking that you bake your family's favorite Christmas cookies. These cookies will be distributed to our homeless brothers and sisters through Hearts' Mobile Soup Kitchen, our homeless shelter meal partnerships and the annual Christmas dinner; all during the week of Christmas.


We have several dates to sign up yourself, your family, or your group. Volunteers can pack stockings with care packages for our homeless brothers and sisters, distribute them during Hearts’ Mobile Soup Kitchen before Christmas or meal prep in our commercial kitchen for our homeless shelter meal partnerships.



By donating just $15, you will allow Hearts to purchase toiletries, warm gloves, and a winter hat that will be assembled into care packages. These care packages will be placed in stockings and will be distributed with prepared meals for the homeless this Christmas season. It is so important for the homeless to receive these items during the harsh winter months.

Our goal is to provide this Christmas blessing for 200 of our homeless friends here in Buffalo. The impact it has on the homeless community, serving them a hot Christmas meal with Christmas cookies and care packages with toiletries, is truly a blessing. Not only will this affect Hearts’ outreach programs and the people we serve through the Hearts Mobile Soup Kitchen, but it also help those during Code Blue of Buffalo and the men, women, and children staying at local homeless shelters.

With your help, we will be able to provide the homeless a dignified meal and joy during the holiday season.

Do you belong to a group or business that would like to host a donation drive?

Hosting a food drive is a great way to provide food-insecure individuals and families with the supplies they need to stay healthy.

Hygiene products are also essential but not always accessible to everyone. Help us collect travel-sized hygiene products to share with our homeless brothers and sisters.

Donation drives big or small will assist our community during the winter months and beyond.
