Help Us With The Virus

COVID has affected all of us, especially the most needy. We have made a commitment to our community to BE THERE! In an unstable world, thanks to your support, we have been able to serve everyone that has come to us for help. Now we are asking for all the people that can’t ask, please help. We have been serving everyone on a take-out model that works well for all, except we are in Buffalo. Fall and winter will come.

We have initiated the Matthew:25 Project. We will get the hungry in, out of the cold. Our downstairs hall will become our new dining room. Social distancing and safety are our main concerns. Your financial assistance is greatly appreciated and 100% of your donation will go to the Matthew:25 Project at Response to Love Center. Donate online via PayPal or send a check to Response to Love Center, Matthew:25 Project,130 Kosciuszko St., Buffalo, NY 14212.

How Donations Help

Located on Buffalo’s East Side the Response to Love Center offers the poor and underserved a hand up not a hand out. Donations contribute to Response to Love’s ability to provide daily hot nutritious meals, stock the food pantry, collect items for the thrift shops, teach TASC Adult Education and ESL (English as a Second Language) and offer resources in the American Veterans Programs – just to name a few.
