BUFFALO, NY – A local store hopes to send a message a week after a gunman opened fire, killing 10 people and injuring three others, inside a Tops Friendly Markets location.
Customers can get a free “Buffalo Strong” t-shirt at any BFLO store with the donation of a non-perishable food or personal care item.
Donations will go to FeedMore WNY to help meet needs during the ongoing food shortage in Buffalo’s Jefferson Avenue neighborhood.
Buffalo Strong t-shirts feature a city skyline silhouette along with the Bills team logo.
“We are proud to partner with the Bills and our great community players on this initiative,” said BFLO Store Owner Nathan Mroz. “Soon, I hope the city can recover from such a devastating and heinous tragedy. There are no words to describe the pain the people of this community are going through. plus the outpouring of support for all neighborhoods in our great city; especially in the neighborhood that was targeted by this unspeakable attack.
Free t-shirts are available first come, first served, while supplies last.
