First school drive held in memory of Dr. Jonathan Daniels

The backpacks for the kids came from donations from groups all over the area, the plan is to do this every year.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The first annual Dr. Jonathan Daniels memorial school drive was a huge success.

Dr. Daniels and his two daughters Jordan and Jensen were killed in a buffalo house fire on the fourth of July. Before his death, Dr. Daniels was working to help the Jefferson Avenue community part of his vision was to have a backpack giveaway. On Sunday that vision became a reality as dozens and dozens of people were served outside urban family practice.

"He was a pediatrician and he served the children ok and he wanted to uplift the children and so that's why we're giving backpacks right before they go back to school to help support them during their journey in school," said Dr. Emmekunla Nylader. "It brings tears to my eyes to know that we have the support of the community and support from jacobs school of medicine on this mission to provide backpacks to the community."
