Diane and Rich Gurbacki are collecting pillows for Sister Johnice Rzadkiewicz at the Response to Love Center at St. Adalbert's on Buffalo's East Side, 130 Kosciuszko St.
The Gurbackis first helped Rzadkiewicz with a diaper drive last year because the mothers who came to the Response to Love Center had no diapers for their babies. Recently, Rzadkiewicz told the Gurbackis many of the adults to whom she ministers have not had a fresh pillow in decades and some of the children roll up an old blanket or towel to rest their heads.
Bring a new pillow or make a donation of $10 toward the purchase of a pillow in the donor's name at the following locations:
•Larkin Square (Holiday Festival) on the evening of Friday, Dec. 2.
•Flying Bison Brewery, 840 Seneca St. in Buffalo, on the evening of Friday, Dec. 2.
•Galleria Mall in front of Dick's Sporting Goods Saturday, Dec. 3.
•Flying Bison Brewery, 840 Seneca St. in Buffalo, on the evening of Friday, Dec. 9.
•Flying Bison Brewery, 840 Seneca St. in Buffalo, in the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 17.
•St. Stephen R.C. Church, Grand Island after Mass Sunday, Dec. 18.
