Here at Christmas Central we are proud to partner with 2 great organizations in the Buffalo, NY community. We feel that supporting Western New York and the amazing people and neighbors of this area, together we can make a difference and take pride in watching Buffalo Rise!
Hospice of Buffalo
Hospice is a compassionate approach to care with the goal of assisting people with serious illnesses live life fully, maintain their dignity and keep control over their lives. Hospice provides medical care, emotional and spiritual support to people and their families facing life-limiting illness in homes, hospitals, adult facilities, nursing homes, group homes and our Hospice Inpatient Units located in Cheektowaga and Buffalo. Hospice is available to any one with an illness whose life expectancy is measured in months, rather than years. It takes very special and compassionate people to provide the kind of support that Hospice caregivers do on a daily basis. Please consider donating to Hospice Buffalo and join us in supporting this amazing organization. Donate Now!
Festival of Trees
An annual tradition in downtown Buffalo now for 35 years, this event is supported and organized by our community and is the main holiday fundraiser in support of Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. Over the years Christmas Central and the Gordon Family have donated hundred of thousands of dollars in Christmas Decorations for the Festival.
Last year’s proceeds were earmarked for the new Children’s Hospital to be completed in December 2015. The Hospital’s move to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and its new design will accommodate advances in medicine by more space for outpatient care, greater opportunity for recruitment of physicians and the ability for employees and visitors to get from one place to another much faster.
As Western New York’s premier holiday event, volunteers create a glittering display of beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, mantle & window displays, a Boutique filled with holiday home décor and stunning gifts. Also featured was a Gallery of Miracles, a walkway featuring stories of hospital patients, their artwork and a 10-foot tree adorned with hundreds of ornaments hand-painted by hospital patients.
The Festival of Trees has been helping the hospital set the standard in pediatric medical care by donating more than $5 million in support of important programs, facility improvements and groundbreaking technology. In previous years, the Festival of Trees has raised money to help with the purchase a $1.5 million CT Scan, purchased a state-of-the-art Ultrasound Machine for $200,000 for the hospital, funding for $8 million Renovation and Expansion of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and $5 million Renovation and Expansion for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
