A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR ANNETTE IAFALLO – COVID-19 TEST KIT & MASK DISTRIBUTION TUESDAY, JANUARY 11TH AT THE LACKAWANNA SENIOR CENTER

Through the efforts of County Executive Mark Poloncarz and our partners in Erie County Government, a limited supply of Covid-19 tests kits and KN-95 protective face masks have been made available for distribution to Lackawanna residents.

We will be distributing the test kits and masks on a first-come basis, WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, at the Lackawanna Senior Center, located at 230 Martin Road, on Tuesday, January 11th.

This will be a drive-through only distribution from 9:30 AM -11:30 AM and 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM.

In an effort to provide these supplies to as many Lackawanna residents as possible, there will be a limit per vehicle of 1 test kit box (which contains 2 tests) and 5 masks. Due to the limited supplies available, we cannot make any exceptions.

Thank you to County Executive Poloncarz and our partners in Erie County Government for providing these supplies to Lackawanna residents and for their efforts to control the spread of Covid-19.

As always, stay safe. And God bless.

This applies to City Hall departments only. If you have business with the Lackawanna City Court, please contact the court directly at 716-845-7220 for further instructions.

I regret that we are once again in a position of having to limit public access to City Hall due to the pandemic.

As always, PLEASE stay safe. And God bless.

153 Lackawanna Kids Receive Free Sneakers for the Christmas Season Courtesy of Micah Hyde’s Imagine for Youth Foundation

One hundred and fifty-three (153) kids from the City of Lackawanna were given a brighter start to their Christmas holiday through a gift of new Nike sneakers made possible by the Imagine for Youth Foundation, founded by Micah Hyde of the Buffalo Bills.

The sneakers were presented during a ‘Kicks for Kids’ drive-through event hosted by members of the Lackawanna Police Department on behalf of Mr. Hyde and his foundation on Tuesday, evening December 21, 2021 at the Lackawanna Senior Center.

In addition to new sneakers, each kid received an Imagine for Youth Foundation bag, an autographed Micah Hyde photograph, a bag of popcorn, hot chocolate and holiday treats. Santa Claus also made a guest appearance.

The Imagine for Youth Foundation aims to help kids both on and off the field. Over the last few years, the foundation has been able to help thousands of kids by providing the necessary tools and resources needed to succeed. Their ‘Kicks for Kids’ event, which debuted in Cleveland, OH, in 2017, is now in its fourth-consecutive year of benefitting kids in the Buffalo area.

Thank you to the Imagine for Youth Foundation, Micah Hyde of the Buffalo Bills and the Lackawanna Police Department for bringing joy to kids in Lackawanna this holiday season!

LACKAWANNA FIRE DEPARTMENT'S ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE HELPS 12 FAMILIES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Continuing its annual tradition, the Lackawanna Fire Department’s holiday food drive helped to make this Christmas season a bit brighter for several City of Lackawanna families.

Organized and overseen by Firefighter Justin Zybert, members of the LFD and their families sorted and delivered donated food items on December 18th to 12 Lackawanna families. Santa Claus and Elmo rode with LFD members and their families to deliver food baskets. Each child from the families visited also received a gift from Santa.

Heartfelt thanks go out to all who donated to the food drive and the men and women of the Lackawanna Fire Department for their generous donation of time and resources to help families in need this holiday season!

Santa Visits Lackawanna City Hall For Ceremonial Christmas Tree Lighting!

Despite cold and blustery December weather, many families with young children were on hand for the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at Lackawanna City Hall on Monday, December 13, 2021.

Santa Claus made a special guest appearance, escorted by members of the Lackawanna Fire Department. Several Lackawanna Police Officers were also on hand to mingle with the crowd and ensure the night’s festivities ran safely.

Those in attendance enjoyed holiday music and carols along with hot chocolate and treats. At 6pm, Santa joined with Mayor Annette Iafallo, Recreation Director Brian Lakso and Youth Burea Director Linda Zybert to officially light the city hall tree!

Thanks to all who came out for last night’s festivities. It was a wonder kickoff to the Christmas season!
