Eight Days of Hope will host its third annual EDOH – Buffalo outreach from July 16-23, providing free home repairs to more than 100 families in the Fillmore District.
In 2019, EDOH – Buffalo served 375 families in the University District, and in 2021, EDOH – Buffalo served 200 families in the Masten District.
“Serving the Buffalo community is a joy. We are excited to bring together local businesses, churches and volunteers, and truly embody what it means to be the City of Good Neighbors to those in the Fillmore District,” said Stephen Tybor, III, EDOH president and CEO.
EDOH – Buffalo 2022 aims to bring 1,200 volunteers locally and from across the country to provide those in the Fillmore District with free home repairs such as painting, carpentry, roofing and landscaping. The outreach will also engage over 50 local businesses and churches to love and serve the community they call home.
“Eight Days of Hope has a tremendous reputation here in the City of Buffalo and has transformed neighborhoods in other districts. I am thrilled that they are coming to the Fillmore District,” said Mitchell Nowakowski, Fillmore District council member.
EDOH is headquartered in Tupelo, Mississippi, with a northeastern satellite in Buffalo and a midwestern satellite in Cedar Rapids, Ohio. While the nonprofit primarily serves those impacted by disasters, EDOH strives to give back to its own communities, like Buffalo.
