Today I stopped by the South Buffalo Community Table to provide masks for their volunteers. The Table resumed meal service this week. For the time being, meals will be served Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 pm to 5 pm on take out only basis. Each day, two meals will be served (one for that day, one for the next).

We are so grateful for the selfless volunteers who provide this invaluable service to our community. Please consider making a non perishable or monetary donation at this weekend’s food drive. Details in the flyer posted below.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Even though we couldn't physically be out in the neighborhood this year, your donations from our Day of Caring Campaign allowed us to still support our community as we have for over 70 years.

In keeping with our service to community Principal Dr. Newton, Director of Admissions, Mr. Graham `10, Jake Reid `20, Sean Gavin `21, Sean McCarthy `21, Tommy English `20, Luke McMahon `20 & Director of Advancement, Mrs. Elis, delivered sweets to the amazing nursing staff at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo

A big thank you to Tom McDonnell `86, Laney Wesser & Brittany Gettings from Dog Ears Bookstore & Cafe for making these scrumptious sweets! The nurses were so excited, you are one of their favorite places!

We were also able to send a donation of $200 to the South Buffalo Community Table we hope this will help fill your shelves to feed those in need when you can once again open your doors.

The South Buffalo Community Table, Inc. is serving take out only meals until further notice. In conjunction with social distancing guidelines, no one will be seated for meal service. Meals service is from 3:45 pm to 5:00 pm. Sundays through Thursdays.
Here’s a picture of the kitchens Tuesday crew from the benefit.
If you missed the Benefit on April 14, 2018 due to the ice storm, you can send donations to: South Buffalo Community Table, P.O. Box 1067, Buffalo, NY 14220.
Hard to believe - we need Jello! We need 6 of one kind per donation. Our guests love Sister Kristen's Jello salad!
We will be closed for Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 7. We will also be closed Wednesday, Nov. 22 so that we can cook a delicious feast for Thanksgiving on the 23rd.
It is very inconvenient that my girlfriend and I walked nearly two and a half miles to find out that you guys were closed when your page said that you were open, and then had to walk nearly two and a half miles back home, mind you, it's not exactly cool outside. The least you guys could have done was put something on your page or the door that indicated that you're not open today. That is very frustrating. Imagine if you guys had to deal with that. How would that make you feel?
