BUFFALO, NY - In it's continuing effort to help those in need, the WNY Coalition for the Homeless is trying something new when it comes to raising funds.
Skydiving for a Cause hopes to raise $10,000 to fund Project Homeless Connect Buffalo.
The event gives those in need access to everything from legal aid, and mental health services, to bicycle repair and socks.
The group of five agencies will hold their 5th annual Project Homeless Connect event at the Buffalo Convention Center in September.
Five brave souls representing those groups have planned their jump for the beginning of August, so funding is already under way.
2 On Your Side Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke spoke to the group about their unique plan.
