NOCO Express donates more than $14,000 to Buffalo City Mission
To assist those in need in the local community during the cold winter months, NOCO Express launched a Code Blue fundraising campaign at its 31 Western New York stores to benefit Buffalo City Mission. NOCO customers generously donated $7,148 by purchasing Code Blue paper snowflakes from February 16 -28. NOCO matched that contribution for a total donation to the Buffalo City Mission of $14,296. In addition, five NOCO Express stores also served as collection points where people could donate winter coats, warmer clothing, gloves and socks.

“This was the first year we partnered with the Buffalo City Mission to raise awareness for the work they do to ensure no one in the Queen City is left outside in the cold,” said Michael Newman, NOCO’s executive vice president. “Our customers responded generously to the call to action to assist those men and women who rely on the Buffalo City Mission for shelter, warmth and a hot meal.”
