This is the third year for our Make a Case for Kids Campaign, and along with the need, it continues to grow!!!  In the past, we’ve give pillow cases filled with toys, crafts, art supplies and more to children at Oishei Children’s Hospital, Gerard Place and more. This year, we are serving hundreds of children and families in Niagara Falls, Buffalo and beyond. We are teaming up, once again, with Catholic Health System’s Neighborhood Health Center in Niagara Falls to provide toys for 125 Niagara Falls children. These children created their own wish list of three items, and our elves are working hard to fill each and every wish!  We are also working with Sister Johnice and the Response to Love Center in Buffalo. Sister and her crew are in need of toys for 203 children ages 3-12.

We are also assisting Hospice and Palliative Care of Buffalo by adopting seven families who need help and hope this Christmas!

Our mission at Totally Buffalo Cares is to do just that. To not only give gifts, toys and clothing – but also to bring hope and happiness to those in need. We can’t do it alone, which is why we’ve teamed up with WIVB – Channel 4 to help gather gifts and more for families all across our region!

Together, we will hold a toy drive to collect the toys needed to make Christmas merry for families who could use some help this year. We hope that you can join us by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to any of the Totally Buffalo Store locations during business hours. The toy drive runs Friday, November 12th through Tuesday, November 30th!

3328 Sheridan Drive, Amherst, 4154 McKinley Parkway, Hamburg OR their newest location inside the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site at 641 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo (this new location opens on Black Friday, November 26, 2021.

We also have an Amazon Wish List if you would rather order from that. The items will be delivered directly to the store.

Thank you for your continued support as we work to help those right here in our community! We appreciate it more than you know.

Here are some photos of our toy drives and handouts from years past!!
