Buffalo Church Starts New Warming Shelter


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- When City Mission at St. Luke's closes at 8 a.m., a new warming shelter will open.

The Temple of Christ Church on Genesee Street is already known for having a women and children's shelter but, starting Friday, it's also opening its doors for anyone to use as a warming shelter.

The church will be open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.

Revered Reginald Kerr says there will be hot food and a limited number of beds. He expects the warming shelter, which will be held in the downstairs of the church, can accommodate more than 200 people.

""It's very cold outside, so we're trying to make sure somebody gets a warm place, so they don't get sick because coldness will take them to illness, and we don't want nobody ill," Kerr said. "We are working to the best of our abilities to supply our community, as well as our city, the City of Buffalo."

Social media played a prominent role in an interesting and creative student art project currently under way at Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Cheektowaga.

It started in January when a member of the school’s faculty spotted an ad on Craigslist offering approximately four dozen Norman Rockwell collectible plates free to a good home. The Boston, N.Y., resident who donated the plates just wanted them to go somewhere where they would be appreciated.
