The COVID-19 crisis has temporarily changed so much in our lives. But one thing hasn’t changed: The people of Buffalo Niagara.

In the face of uncertainty, we show empathy. In the face of fear, we show strength. And in a time of crisis, we show just why they call us The City of Good Neighbors.

Though much is still uncertain, we wanted to share some of the good news coming out of our community.

This blog will be constantly updated as this community continues to wow us with its kindness. Send us any positive local news stories that you see, and we’ll make sure they’re added.

Today, we’re so proud to be Buffalonians. And together, we’ll build an even better tomorrow.
