TAPD brings joy to families of BBBS

NFTA TAPD Officers shopping for gifts

During the months of November and December, NFTA's Transit Police Department sponsored a  No-Shave campaign to support the families of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County.  All money raised was used to purchase gifts for four families who were selected by BBBS.  The officers also received  donations from NFTA and Metro employees.

The NFTA TAPD successfully collected over $3,500 and sent their team of elves out to purchase items from Walmart, Target, and Toys R Us.  All of the gifts were wrapped and presented to the families on Dec. 22 at their homes.

Family of BBBS

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the largest provider of youth mentoring services in the United States. In Erie County, they have been matching caring adults with local children for more than 40 years and have impacted the lives of over 9,500 youth.

This is the third year that the NFTA TAPD worked with BBBS in this special holiday partnership.    Thank you to everyone who was involved with this great cause!
