Our friends at PUNT FUND shared this amazing story and we wanted to pass it along because it is incredibly heartwarming!

We know Buffalo is the City of Good Neighbors and here’s just another example of that and again – it includes the heroes at the Buffalo Fire Department!

When Buffalo Fire Department Engine 1 and Ladder 2 learned about some kids who would be spending Christmas at Oishei Children’s Hospital, they knew instantly they wanted to do something to help these little sweeties have a memorable Christmas.

So, they did what they often do – they went above and beyond their call of duty. The special group not only adopted a family, they also took time to show the kids what true community and love is all about.


We’ve worked with and have supported the PUNT FUND and their mission for quite a while and know the incredible work they do and we can’t thank them enough!

Thanks to the Buffalo Fire Department for making a difference in the lives of these incredible children!
