So great to hear that Al Roker of the Today Show was in town to honor a 96-year-old volunteer, Daisy “Estelle” Anderson, at the Ladies of Charity on Broadway in the neighborhood.

Congratulations, Daisy!

Here’s what the today show had to say,

“As our Neighbors Helping Neighbors series continues to spotlight people making a difference in their communities, TODAY’s Al Roker heads to Buffalo to meet a 96-year-old volunteer – and deliver a heartwarming surprise. (By TODAY with our sponsor State Farm)”

Watch the video HERE.

Ladies of Charity does a great deal for moms to be in need.  Check them out HERE.
