“Kids Day is always an event that I look forward to,” said Mayor Brown. “I’m so proud to be a part of this annual tradition for a good cause and I encourage city residents and visitors to support Kids Day by buying this special edition of the Buffalo News on April 25th. I also thank the many volunteers for their commitment and dedication to this event, which helps improve the quality of life for so many of our children and their families.”
Since 1983, the profits made from the Special Kids Day Edition Sale have totaled more than $4.6 million and have helped children all across WNY.
“Kids Day is a great way for the community to come together, supporting children and their families as thousands of enthusiastic volunteers and helping hands make this a truly special day,” said Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz. “Erie County is a compassionate community that cares, and events like Kids Day help to highlight the compassion we have in our hearts.”
This year, the Buffalo News “Kids Day Edition” will be sold at over 1,000 locations throughout the area.
