Categories: Outreach

500 asylum seekers are coming to Buffalo in the next couple of weeks and our partner Jericho Road Community Health Center is welcoming, hosting, and coordinating their arrival. They need a lot of donations, but even more so they need volunteers to help. 

As Jesus followers, we are called to love others and welcome strangers into our lands with open arms. We (the church of Buffalo) are rallying together to welcome and host and love them well. There are two ways you can participate:

Donate

1. Make a Go Bag. In a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, please include:

  • 2 plastic water bottles
  • 2 granola bars
  • 1 box of raisins
  • 2 Slim Jims
  • 1 applesauce pouch

2. New or gently used warm clothes for men, women, and children
3. Diapers and baby wipes
4. Craft supplies: crayons, coloring books, plain paper

You can bring your donation the tables in our campus lobbies January 29, February 5, and February 12. You can also drop off donations during our regular business ours at our Central Office (Door 3 at our McKinley Campus) Monday - Thursday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.
