Donations For Harvey Victims Are Filling Up At Buffalo City Hall

Mayor Brown’s city-wide donation initiative to aid persons impacted by Hurricane Harvey continues. UB Smile Team drops off donations for Houston Hurricane Victims 
Items will be transported to Texas on September 11th, the national day of service which commemorates the victims, survivors and first-responders of the 9/11 attacks.


September 7 – Donations for victims of Hurricane Harvey are steadily piling up at Buffalo City Hall after Mayor Byron W. Brown, in conjunction with the Buffalo Salvation Army and True Bethel Baptist Church, recently launched a city-wide donation initiative to aid persons impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  Today, the University at Buffalo Smile Team joined the growing number of city employees, residents and organizations who answered the call and made a donation.
Mayor Brown stated, “Our thoughts are still with the people of Texas and I thank the University at Buffalo Smile Team and everyone else who stepped up to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  As the City of Good Neighbors, we understand the importance of helping out those in need and I think when Texas sees our positive response, they’ll know for sure that Buffalo is here for them and have our full support.”
Anyone wishing to contribute may bring items to established drop-off points:  Buffalo City Hall, True Bethel at 907 E. Ferry St. and the Salvation Army headquarters, at 960 Main Street. Donations will be accepted through the end of the week. The following is a list of much needed supplies: new toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, towels, blankets, baby formula, diapers, baby wipes, deodorant, shampoo, cases of water, crayons, pencils, pens and notebooks. A more extensive list of donation drop-off locations and requested items can be found on the City of Buffalo website: www.city-buffalo.com
The barrels of donated goods will then be transported to Texas on September 11th, the national day of service which commemorates the victims, survivors and first-responders of the 9/11 attacks. Buffalo’s delivery will be part of that continuing tribute and a gesture of kindness to our fellow Americans recovering the wrath of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation.
