Polka music fans are asked to bring winter, holiday and personal items to benefit St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy to the annual “Christmas Sing-Along,” hosted by Buffalo’s Special Delivery Band.
St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy is an independent Mission in the Roman Catholic tradition in the inner city of Buffalo. It does not receive money from the government or the diocese. Rather, its ministry depends on donations to continue its service to the community.
Items needed by St. Luke’s include:
Winter needs: Medications (pain relievers, cold and allergy medications, cough drops, for both children and adults – please, no prescription drugs).
Everyday needs: Clean and gently used clothing, shoes and boots, linens, toys; candy; baby diapers; wipes and formula (Enfamil is preferred); toilet paper; paper towels; tissues and small-size personal hygiene products.
Code blue needs: Men’s sweatshirts, T-shirts, socks, blankets and sheets.
Donations: Checks (no cash, please) made out to St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy with “HOLIDAY FOOD BASKETS” in the reference line.
This year’s “Christmas Sing-Along” will be held from 7-11 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21, at Pott’s Banquet Hall, 41 S. Rossler Ave., Cheektowaga. Doors will open at 6 p.m.
For table reservations, contact Ted Szymanski at 716-668-9101.
To help St. Luke’s Mission directly with a monetary donation, send check or money order to St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy, P.O. Box 448, Buffalo, NY 14215.
