This past weekend, myself and the rest of the new hires went to St. Luke's Mission of Mercy to help out with their Thanksgiving food drive. St. Luke's is an independent Mission located in the City of Buffalo, and is driven entirely by volunteers and donations. We all wanted to do something together outside of the office before busy season started, so this was a perfect fit for us!
Each year, St Luke's puts together thousands of bags of food for the homeless and less fortunate. The food is donated from Wegmans, Tops and other area businesses. Every family is given two bags of food, allowing these families to celebrate Thanksgiving with a combination of healthy produce and nonperishable snacks. We helped fill the bags and move the boxes of food - it was a great way to give back and work together with hundreds of others from the local community. Bags will be distributed to families starting this Tuesday.
