Part of automotive companies’ second annual ‘Share the Love’ campaign
√ Donation was commemorated at a check-presentation ceremony at Amherst dealership
A press release noted, “The donation marks the second annual contribution given to the City Mission from Northtown’s campaign, marking a lasting commitment between the two organizations.”
“The City Mission is humbled and grateful for the continued generosity from the Northtown Automotive Companies and the entire Western New York Community,” said Aubrey Calhoun, chief operating officer of the Buffalo City Mission. “As we continue to help renew the lives of those who are struggling, the charitable goodwill of our partners furthers the impact we have.”
To commemorate the financial donation, a check presentation ceremony was held at Northtown Subaru’s Amherst dealership. Here, staff of the Buffalo City Mission were joined by leadership members of the Northtown Automotive Companies and given an oversized check to mark the milestone.
“Northtown Automotive has a commitment to doing what we can to better the lives of those across Buffalo. By working together and supporting the Buffalo City Mission, we are doing just that,” said Harold Erbacher, chief operating officer and co-owner of Northtown Automotive Companies. “We pride ourselves on assisting others by creating a sense of family and generosity – both at the dealerships where we work and in the community we serve.”
Funds from the charitable donation will be used to advance the programs and services offered at the Buffalo City Mission. These programs benefit the men, women and children looking to build a pathway to a healthy and stable life by addressing the root cause of homelessness. Services for men are offered at the Alfiero Family Center of Hope and Promise. Women and children can receive care and support at the City Mission’s Cornerstone Manor.
