During this season of giving, NOCO Express customers donated $13,541 to support The Salvation Army Buffalo Area Services. Throughout the month of November, paper kettles were sold for $1 each at all NOCO Express’ 36 locations to benefit The Salvation Army.
“Once again our customers and community showed their generosity to support those in need in western New York this holiday season,” said Jim DeFilippis, vice president and general manager, NOCO Express. “In the two years we have conducted this November campaign, more than $26,000 has been donated to our local Salvation Army.”
“We are most appreciative of this partnership with NOCO, as it not only raises valuable dollars at holiday time, but helps generate community awareness of The Salvation Army,” Major Thomas Applin, director of operations, Erie County, stated. “The funds raised at holiday time help support our mission of providing basic needs to our community, all year round.”
The Salvation Army’s commitment to putting people first is the driving force behind its mission. Locally, The Salvation Army in Buffalo exists to offer hope for a better life by meeting basic human needs.
