Our Kaleidoscope and LGBTQ+ Affinity groups recently coordinated a donation of Rich’s Ultimate Breakfast Rounds to The MOCHA Center - Buffalo and its food pantry. The organization continues to provide essential health services for our community, so we hope these whole grain treats will help sweeten the days ahead.
Our Center for Supportive Services reduces barriers for anyone trying to access healthcare, including LGBTQ+ populations and people of color. The MOCHA Center - Buffalo joining Evergreen will allow us to do even more for these communities. Thank you Spectrum News Buffalo and Camalot Todd for telling this exciting story!
Today we reflect on the work and words of Martin Luther King Jr. A pioneer of civil rights, he helped to break barriers and get us where we are today...but there is still so much more work to be done. We at Step Out Buffalo wanted to share some great local organizations that continue to do the work necessary to make our city, country, and the world a place of unity and justice for all: NAACP Buffalo Branch Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Feed Buffalo International Institute of Buffalo Justice For Migrant Families Open Buffalo Partnership for the Public Good Push Buffalo Rooted In Love, Inc.
