Response to Love Center responding to the extreme cold here in Buffalo.

We have been so blessed again this year by a wonderful donation of warm coats for children from the Father Justin Knights of Columbus 5670. Located at 2735 Union Rd. Cheektowaga NY.  Sister Johnice asked all the volunteers, staff and Sisters to be “on the lookout” for children that might need a coat. We had our annual Christmas toy distribution on December 13th and 14th when Sister Rose and Buffalo Police officer Gail Allen noticed a child with only a hooded sweatshirt on (and it was cold outside) so the God squad went to work and sized our first coat of the season to a very happy and warm young man.  Many of our people are arriving from other areas of the world and have never experienced real cold conditions needing coats, boots, and warm clothing. Then during the Christmas day dinner and subsequent days more coats found new owners providing warmth and bright happiness to the children receiving them.
