Hope is Greater than Fear

While taking unprecedented measures to keep our staff, volunteers, and clients safe, your local Salvation Army is continuing to serve our neighbors in need.

Our Family Shelter is providing a safe, clean environment for families while helping them navigate the extra challenges that have come with COVID-19. Our mobile canteen continues its twice weekly Street Feed Program serving pre-packaged meals to anyone in need in downtown Buffalo, and our food pantry can be accessed through the Emergency Assistance Program which remains open Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 9 a.m. -1 p.m. All group activities and face-to-face case management have been suspended until further notice.

If you need assistance or have questions, please call 716-883-9800.

Stay safe and God Bless!

Majors Annette and John Lock
