BUFFALO, NY - They have served our Country and sacrificed a great deal, but they have not asked for anything in return. The truth is, many of our veterans need help, especially during the holidays. Now, you can help them.
The Wagner Family of Barker, NY have had a couple of rough years. Both have lost jobs and needed surgery. With seven children, it is not easy. The Wagners were helped last year by the WNY Heroes Organization. They were given some presents, food and other extras to help them get through the holidays.
Margaret and Wayne say it meant a great deal. They say it was not only about the 'things' but more importantly just knowing that other people care.
WNY Heroes is trying to connect military families in need with those heroes willing to help. They're asking people to adopt a family. A family like the Wagners.
If you would like to help, you can call WNY Heroes at 716-630-5020 or visit their site at www.wnyheroes.com. You can also call or email them if you are a member of the Military -- past or present -- and you need help.
