Bills and Sabres collaborate to help those in need with Give 716


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres’ foundations are collaborating to help charities across Western New York. News 4’s Gabrielle Mediak shares how you can help, with Give 716.

The goal of Give 716 is simple: To help Bills and Sabres fans find and connect with nonprofit organizations that make an impact on causes they care about.

During an unprecedented past year and a half, nonprofits have become a saving grace to those who are struggling. To show their appreciation, the foundations are giving back to more than 200 local organizations. And they’re asking for your help, too.

Donations will be collected from July 15 at 7:16 p.m. through July 16 at 11:59 p.m. Click or tap here to see which charities are participating in Give 716.

The initiative is meant to bring together individuals, groups and businesses that want to support the many nonprofits across the counties in WNY.

Some of the organizations already involved include Buffalo Niagara Honor Flight, Eight Days of Hope and Feedmore WNY. But those involved want to help connect lesser known organizations as well.
