City of Good Neighbors to The Rescue

It’s hard to go anywhere these days without seeing someone sporting a Buffalo branded t-shirt or sweatshirt. City spirits are high, and there’s nothing like wearing your feelings on your sleeve (or your chest) to get the pro-Buffalo message out there.

While there are hundreds of Buffalo designs to choose from, ranging from the buffalo silhouette to myriad sports teams, there’s something to be said about sporting apparel that also raises money for a worthy cause. And I believe that we have come across a worthy cause that needs your support. The following message is a plea from Eric, who has taken up the charge to help a neighbor in need:

Saturday night there was a fire at Lovering Avenue in North Buffalo. The homeowner is my neighbor and it appears her home might be beyond repair (see news).

I wanted to do something for her to help with the transition. I thought it would be cool to not just give money but have people show support. I created a t-shirt people can buy with all proceeds going to her.

We always say we are the City of Good Neighbors…

For every t-shirt sold at a retail price of $18.70, the amount of $10 will go directly to the unfortunate homeowner. There is a goal of 50 t-shirts needed in order for the bulk transaction to clear. Once the goal is met, the t-shirts will be ordered and the good Samaritans will be charged accordingly. I would venture to think that the City of Good Neighbors can help to reach that goal, and then far surpass it. Plus, it’s a pretty cool shirt to have for your collection!

 Order a t-shirt.
