Client Updates:

We are in the process of switching to a more detailed application process. We understand your time is valuable however once we convert we will need all current and future applicants to fill out the new form. This is to ensure that we are assisting those who qualify through our mission. Documentation must be current per the guidelines which you qualify. It is strongly suggested that if you or others in your household qualify under multiple scenarios you provide documentation for each, for example a pay stub and a diagnosis letter for a special needs child. Going forward there will not be any exceptions allowing clients to sign up and shop if:

1. The application is not thoroughly completed and 

2. Required documentation is not present. 

In addition all adults in the household will require photo ID and birth certificates for minors in the home. If you do not have the birth certificate because you are a legal guardian custody papers will suffice.

   The Hope Project of WNY, Inc. would like to express our deepest gratitude to the Ken-Ton Rotary on their generous grant of $5,000 to help us purchase a box truck or van. This will help us provide donations of larger items to our clients. Additionally, we would like to thank Carpet Factory Outlet, for their donation of carpet remnants which will be used as carpet tiles in our new location, and to Emerald Heating and Cooling who installed a new thermostat for us. 

   A huge thank you to everyone who purchased gifts for our Christmas families especially our corporate sponsors Ingram Micro, Touching Hearts at Home and Drescher & Malecki! Your generosity has helped make the holidays bright for many struggling families in our local community!
