It has been an honor and a truly rewarding time for me to be working in the Development Department of the Food Bank of Western New York for the past 10 years. What I have witnessed her over that time has been so heartwarming and I thank my dear friends, the late E.W. Dann Stevens and Burt Flickinger for getting me involved here after ending my career as a sports writer and with the Buffalo Bisons. The Food Bank of WNY relies on donations of food and funds from the public to help us provide food assistance to more than 40,000 families in Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara Counties. 100 percent of the donations from Walk Off Hunger goes to the Food Bank and I would appreciate your assistance this year. $1 helps us provide 6 meals to our less fortunate neighbors so any amount is greatly appreciate. Thanks so much and blessings to you.
