Guild members participate in annual Kids Day

Members of the Guild sold Kids Day editions of The Buffalo News once again this year to benefit Oishei Children’s Hospital.

Guild members volunteer each year at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and East Ferry Street to sell papers in the early morning hours.

On Tuesday, April 30, 2019, thanks to decent weather, enthusiastic volunteers and generous souls, the Guild’s Kids Day volunteers raised $304. This is our highest total in more than a decade at least.
