Many thanks to those who donated and/or volunteered to help. Buffalo State alumni, faculty, staff and students along with community volunteers all helped to make the day a huge success. The event was arranged via the Friends of the Asarese in conjunction with the Office of College and Community Partnerships, the Alumni Association and the Volunteer and Service- Learning Center.
Don’t forget to start saving your toiletry items for the holiday bag distribution we’ll be coordinating in December 2009 for the children who utilize the Center. Many of these youth live in poverty and often do not have items that we take for granted like shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, cream, combs, brushes, lip balm, soap, etc. Your donations will help make the holidays a little better for these struggling families.
