KYLE'S GIFT FROM HEAVEN
Collaborating with Kyle's Gift From Heaven, an organization dedicated to providing for youth with deceased parents. We were able to fulfill all items on all Christmas lists, but more importantly, let the youth know they are not alone!
Aside from receiving gifts, the youth were able to participate in various activities for toys, movie passes, gift cards and much more!
As Neighborhood Heroes, it is in our blood to go above and beyond to build impactful bonds with each individual we encounter.
CANDLES IN THE S.U.N. YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMP
To kick off the summer, we hosted our first annual free football camp! Connecting with past professionals and current collegiate athletes, the youth were given the chance to display their skills and learn from the best!
S.U.N. Day Fun Day With The Heroes
According to recent CNN studies, 15 million children don't have money for school supplies. Therefore, the Neighborhood Heroes knew it was essential we did all we could to lower that locally. Along with the free backpacks, we also hosted a free community day! The day included food, haircuts, hairstyling, with carnival snacks and activities!
NEIGHBORHOOD HEROES SAVE THE DAY!
MORE THAN 180 LOCAL RESIDENTS FED!
HOLIDAYS WITH THE HEROES
This holiday season, we decided to focus on providing meals more so than toys, because how cool is a toy on an empty stomach? With the help of our sponsors, The Neighborhood Heroes delivered more than 250 meals to Buffalo Public School families Christmas Day.
After feeding the families, we went to visit our friends at the NFTA Bus Station to distribute the remaining meals!
HEROES MASK THE CITY!
More than 1,000 medical masks and 1,000 pairs of gloves given to local residents!
THE HEROES UNITE TO FIGHT HUNGER
The Heroes took to the streets of Lackawanna, providing more than 200 lunches to local residents! The S.U.N Bags contained a sandwich, a bottle of water, chips, fruit and a mask. The fight against hunger doesn't stop, and neither do the Heroes! 🏁
Although the fight against police brutality will never stop, we can't forget about those that rely on the #NeighborhoodHeroes! To honor the Juneteenth celebrations, we kicked off our neighborhood cleanups along the infamous Genesee strip!
