Warm it Forward has taken root across the country and we are lucky enough to have the event in Buffalo. We'll be tying hats, scarves, and gloves/mittens to trees around Buffalo. Anyone who is cold can take what they need to keep warm.
Four areas around the city of Buffalo have been identified:
1. The corner of Broadway and Bailey Avenue, across from Rite Aid by the bus shelter.
2. Friends of Night People, 394 Hudson St.
3. Fireman's Park, Washington to Ellicott Street between North and South Division Streets, diagonally across from the bus station.
4. Columbus Park, bordered by Niagara Street, Connecticut Street, Porter Avenue and Prospect Avenue, across from the Connecticut Street Armory.
We need your help! Please bring items to tie around the trees, which is a fun way to spread awareness and draw users' attention to what is available for them to take to keep warm. We will also be winding twine around some trees and making clothespins available. That way, you can put items into plastic or Ziploc bags to keep them safe from the elements. Please also feel free to include a positive, handwritten message. Items can be new or gently used.
If you can't make it to a tie-up location, we have a few drop-off options:
* Spot Coffee, 765 Elmwood Ave., from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday Feb. 4.
* Barnes & Noble, 1565 Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday Feb. 5.
* Project 308 Gallery, 308 Oliver St. in North Tonawanda, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday Jan 31.
* Studio 74, 74 Webster St. in North Tonawanda from noon to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
