Our third abortion care package event was held in Buffalo on February 6! A group of PPCWNY volunteers, overseen by Public Affairs’ Maddie and Meredith and Volunteer Program Manager Kathy, efficiently assembled about 400 boxes in the span of a few hours – and the Buffalo health center began distributing them to patients the very next day!
In just a few months, we’ve hosted care package events in Rochester and Syracuse in addition to Buffalo, received much-appreciated assistance from dozens of dedicated volunteers, and are zeroing in on 1500 completed care packages. That means we have the capacity to offer about 1500 in-clinic and medication abortion patients a little extra comfort – fuzzy socks and snacks not least among them.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered at the Buffalo event as well as those who helped out at previous events or at the University Ave. offices in Rochester. We would not be able to supply our patients these tokens of support without you.
