BNC is Adopting a Military Family this Holiday Season

Author: Renee Cerullo/Tuesday, November 20, 2018

We will be Adopting a Military Family (a female veteran's family in need) thru the Veteran's One Stop Center for the holiday season. Help us make the holidays brighter for this veteran's family! 

Over the course of November and December, the Veterans One-stop Center of WNY receives requests from local organizations to adopt families for the oliday season.  NYS Women Inc Buffalo Niagara Chapter has taken on one family to help this year. Below is a note from the family selected for us along with items they are looking for. Please wrap the items and put the name of the person on the package and bring them to our December 5th Holiday meeting at Salvatore's. If you can not make the meeting but want to help there are a few options:

  1. Purchase them from Amazon and ship them to Renee or Sue.
  2. Drop off the items at Renee or Sue's house.
  3. Give them to another person attending the event.
  4. Send a check to Sue and she will purchase items we do not get.

From our Veteran

My family is in a really tough spot this year. We have currently lost my son in law's father and my daughther's adoptive mother both within a week of each other which has taken a toll financially. We are also in the process of trying to move into a new apartment and get out of the apartment we are currently in due to my current landloard who has had us living in horrible conditions for quite awhile. He has left us without heat with two young children and has made it extrenely difficult for us to try and get into a new place. Due to having to move and the two losses, I will not be able to give my family or my two young grandchildren a Christmas this year.
