Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown today thanked members of the Buffalo Police Department (DPD) and Buffalo Police

Athletic League staff for distributing to 48 families today at the BPD’s C-District headquarters on East Ferry Street.

“These toys will bring Christmas joy and cheer to the children and teens whose family economic situations make it difficult

to afford holiday gifts,” Mayor Brown said. “This toy distribution was made possible by all those who donated to my annual

toy drive, as well as Highmark BCBS, the Buffalo Bills, and other community partners.

Families in need of help with Christmas gift giving, from throughout the City of Buffalo, were identified by BPD Community

Police Officers, child care centers, and community organizations.

Twenty newly-graduated BPD recruits assisted in the toy distribution, which included dropping off toys at the homes of

recipients with transportation challenges, as part of their Community Policing training.

The Broadway Market has expanded holiday hours through Christmas Eve

The Broadway Market is open today through Thursday, December 23, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Friday, Christmas Eve,

from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. offering holiday favorites and special gifts to help you complete your gift list.

The Market will be closed Friday, December 25 and Saturday, December 26.

Recycle for the Holidays!

It’s not too early to start your holiday recycling efforts. All of those cardboard boxes that your gift purchases arrive in, as

well as any paper they are wrapped in, can be put in your green curbside recycling tote.

Plastic wrapping, Styrofoam and other non-recyclable materials should be disposed of separately.
