Buffalo Bills and NFL Foundation Donate $400k To Response Efforts
The City of Buffalo is still in mourning after this past Saturday's racist attack on Buffalo's east side.
10 people lost their lives and three more were injured after a gunman committed an attack at the Tops in Jefferson Avenue on Buffalo's east side. The attack was racially motivated, as police and investigators soon discovered.
The City of Buffalo, Western New York and New York State have led response efforts to help the victims families and friends, along with the east side community, as the Tops location remains closed due to an ongoing investigation.
The Buffalo Bills and the NFL stepped up on Wednesday, as the Bills announced that their foundation has donated $200,000 to response efforts after Saturday's attack. The NFL Foundation matched the donation, making it $400,000.
President Joe Biden and First Lady, Jill Biden visited Buffalo on Tuesday. They went to Jefferson Avenue and the site of the aftermath, along with meeting directly with victims families and first responders. President Biden later addressed the media at a press conference.
A community document has been created to allow Western New York residents to find out exactly how to help those in need, as in where to donate and what to donate.
You can find that document here.
