It's that time of year when shoppers flock to the Broadway Market to stock up on everything they need for Easter.  Another long-time tradition is the Erie County Sheriff's Mounted Division setting up outside the Broadway Market for their annual Easter time collection for the Food Bank of Western New York.

The Erie County Sheriff's Mounted Unit along with Sister Johnice will be outside the Market from 10 am to 1 pm this Wednesday, April 17th. They'll be collecting non-perishable food items as well as cash donations.  All the donations will be going to the Response to Love Center whose mission statement is to improve lives across our community by addressing basic human needs and providing a pathway to self-sufficiency.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Food weighing into the tons and thousands of dollars have been raised at this event over the years at both Easter time and Christmas.

The Broadway Market is located at 999 Broadway, open from 8 am to 5 pm with extended hours during the days leading up to Easter.
