Foundation, Cornerstone Manor, Stop the Clot Alliance, Women & Children’s Hospital, Let them LOL, Wear ‘N Share and Flight 3407 Families.
Each fall, Deborah’s store offers “The Gratitude Tree”, in conjunction with a local Clarence Center Family. Community members complete and hang a tag with what they are grateful for. During the holidays, it converts into “The Giving Tree” where visitors take an angel tag to help a person in need. This past year, over 150 local WNY families received holiday gifts. Additionally, the store has housed a Women’s Bible Study, which has grown to over 100 women, representing dozens of churches across Buffalo.
