INTRODUCING BEYOND THE YELLOW RIBBON-BUFFALO:
BTYR-Buffalo received our proclamation as a BTYR community in June 2013. Since then, BTYR-Buffalo has worked to create a committee that is committed to providing support, services, and resources to our veterans, service members, and their families. BTYR-Buffalo is involved in community programs and events designed to assist and honor them as well.
BTYR-Buffalo would like the Buffalo community to know we are here and available to assist our veterans and service members. BTYR-Buffalo has helped veterans in a variety of ways, such as distributing holiday meals to veterans, provide transportation to appointments, assisting with furnace and car repair, moving and travel expenses, fuel donations, and a variety of other financial assistance and aid.
BTYR-Buffalo’s most successful event has been a Military Appreciation Picnic (PDF) that is held every year. It is a way for BTYR-Buffalo to recognize and honor our Buffalo veterans, service members, and their families with a free meal and to recognize their service to our country.
