Support People Inc. through Give 716

Jul 12, 2023

Give 716 is a collaborative giving event organized by the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres Foundations to unite fans and the community in support of local nonprofits. This epic giving event is a one-of-a-kind chance to donate to People Inc. while taking advantage of corporate challenges where gifts are matched, or special incentives are offered! 

From 7:16 p.m. on July 16 through 7:16 a.m. on July 18, you can join the fun and make a difference with your donation. Want to help even more? Share the Give 716 information with your networks through social media.

Donations made to People Inc. will support our many life-changing services benefiting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, families and seniors. Worlds open up through your generous philanthropy!

Without your help, people like Brandon Mazur may not have found the hands-on work experience he receives through People Inc.’s own “People Shoppe” in Buffalo. Brandon says he is “proud to be the first person customers see – it makes me and them feel happy.”

Funds also provide services for people such as Kenyata Cooper, who lives with cerebral palsy and glaucoma and says, “If I did not have my physical therapy, I would be lost!”

Your generosity helps creativity blossom for people like Nick Kilpatrick, who has built skills as a craftsman and musician with the help of a self-determination assistant. “I like to make new friends, along with the people I work with,” Nick says, “I really enjoy learning new things and playing my music for everyone.”

Additionally, contributions bring shelter and sense of community to people like John Hartman, who has found a safe place to live in one of People Inc.’s Affordable Apartments. John says, “I walked into my apartment overwhelmed and so very thankful.”

Support a great cause, while enjoying special perks!Schedule 2023.jpg
