Since 1983 Tops Friendly Markets has presented the Buffalo community with a special Kids Days in order to raise money for the John R. Oishei, Children’s Hospital, Cradle Beach and children of Western New York. The Buffalo community volunteers every year to help sell newspaper for a dollar. On April 30th, 2019 they celebrated their 37th year of raising money and have raised over $4.8 million dollars.
Buffalo State student life asks their Greek organizations to participate in this event. In which we have to wake up at 6:00 a.m. to meet up at a certain location at 6:15 a.m. to put the cover page on the new papers and head to our selling locations by 6:30 a.m. For the past 4 years I have participated in this event and it has been an amazing opportunity. From people giving us thumps up, honking at us or evening smiling it has been a great experience even if it’s early in the morning. Over the years one thing that we have noticed was a lot of people who donate have kids in their cars and a lot of those kids are the ones who hand us the dollar. Some people even donate money and do not even want the newspaper. I hope some day I will be able to pass by Buffalo State College and donate money on Buffalo Kids News Day.
