YMCA Buffalo Niagara Press Release 

YMCA Buffalo Niagara is launching a donation drive beginning Friday, May 17, to benefit Western New York veterans. The Y is looking for donations of the following hygiene products at any of its six wellness centers: deodorant, nail clippers, bar soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, socks, shampoo and other hair care products.

All donated products will go to WNY Heroes, to benefit local men and women who served in the military. This donation drive runs through Memorial Day, and everyone in the community is invited to participate. Donors who wish to participate and are not YMCA members will be eligible to save $50 on a YMCA membership.

A press release added, “Friday, May 17, is also RED Day, which stands for Remember Everyone Deployed. On any given day, there are over 170,000 U.S. troops deployed throughout the world. YMCA Buffalo Niagara and its community will honor their sacrifice and the families they leave behind by wearing red to support our military families.”
