Have you heard? Due to Covid-19, we’ve temporarily changed our motto to “Stay In, Buffalo”.  And for the foreseeable future we will be posting content that shares how our community can continue to support local businesses while adhering to guidelines set by the CDC.⁠

Over these past couple Coronavirus weeks, we’ve been truly overwhelmed by the heartwarming stories we’ve witnessed on social media, seen on the news, and heard about from friends during zoom happy hours. There’s not a day that goes by that I haven’t gotten the chills hearing about someone going above and beyond to support another human. I even witnessed one of those drive-by birthday parades for a kiddo yesterday and nearly bawled my eyes out.

Throughout the rest of these quaran-times we plan to continue sharing our favorite stories of Western New Yorkers doing the *most* – stay tuned.
