We love helping the little guys here in Western New York. Every week we highlight Buffalo-based charities and initiatives that you have started.
Mats for a Mission needs your plastic grocery bags!! We know that you may not have a TON sitting under the kitchen sink anymore because of the plastic bag ban here in New York State, but every bag counts. They do not have to be grocery store bags, too.
Plastic grocery bags that are clean, smoke & pet hair-free can be dropped off at their Eastern Hills Mall office in the old JC Penney’s wing. Mats for a Mission is open on Saturdays, where you will find all of the volunteers hard at work, but you will also find a bin outside of their location that you can drop off bags as well.
Bags are recycled into sleeping mats for the homeless. The group has used over 1,000,000 plastic bags to make mats for the homeless. For more information, include an additional drop-off locations.

WHAT TO DO: If you or someone you know is involved with the charity in the area, send them our way! Tell us about your charity below! It only takes a minute.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU: Every single Friday, we will highlight a charity in Western New York. Whether be on the air, or on the website, or BOTH, we want to help you are your mission. We want to help the good people in Western New York continue to be good people.
