Every year for the past four years Buffalo City Mission in conjunction with technology partners Noobis launches their campaign to raise funds to continue ministering to the poor and homeless. Since February is one of the coldest winter months in WNY there is no better time to do it. Because of that—this is also the time when many families in our area must make heartbreaking choices between rent costs, heating bill and feeding their families. Locals are encouraged to join and help "Stamp OUt Hunger" through hungerhunt.com.
Did you know that, according to the Homeless Alliance of Western New York, 58% of the homeless population experienced homelessness for the first time? Or that almost 20-percent of the homeless population consists of children and 39-percent of those children are younger than age 5!
This highly interactive experience lasts the entire month of February and is sure to uncover many facts about homelessness that you never knew.
