Rotary Club of Grand Island: Undie Sunday Is Feb. 10-24

Sat, Feb 9th 2019 07:00 am

The timing of this year’s Rotary Club of Grand Island’s Undie Sunday to benefit the homeless in Niagara Falls, Buffalo and surrounding areas is ideal considering the recent below-zero temperatures during the Blizzard of 2019. Beginning on Sunday, Feb. 10, and concluding on Sunday, Feb. 24, Island residents are encouraged to donate the basic needs of new and unused underclothing and socks for homeless men, women and children.

Donations may be placed in the hampers at the following churches on Grand Island: Bible Presbyterian, 1650 Love Road; Island Presbyterian, 1822 Huth Road; St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church, 2587 Baseline Road; St. Stephen R.C. Church, 2100 Baseline Road; St. Timothy Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1453 Staley Road.

In addition, donations may also be placed in the hampers at Ace Hardware, 1889 Whitehaven Road; Grand Island Memorial Library, 1715 Bedell Road; Island Pharmacy, 1728 Grand Island Blvd.; Island Ship Center and Momma De’s Bakery & Café, 1879 Whitehaven Road; KeyBank, 2180 Grand Island Blvd.; M&T Bank, 2381 Grand Island Blvd.; Northwest Savings Bank, 2300 Grand Island Blvd.; Tops Friendly Markets, 2140 Grand Island Blvd.; and the lobby of Town Hall, 2255 Baseline Road.

“We sincerely appreciate the generosity of the Grand Island residents who donate to this extremely important program. These items provide a personal dignity, comfort and warmth for the homeless in our community,” said Faye Teluk, chair of the Rotary Club of Grand Island’s Undie Sunday committee.

The committee commended Tops Friendly Markets and Niagara Frontier Publications for providing the advertisement in the Island Dispatch; Island Ship Center for donating posters; and Popular Graphics for creating the banner, which will be posted on the town sign at Whitehaven Road and Grand Island Boulevard. The donations will be sorted on Feb. 25 before being delivered to the Buffalo City Mission, Community Missions of Niagara Falls, Harbor House and St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy.
