One of Calvary's top priorities is to provide for the needs of others in the community and the world.

  • Buffalo Public School 30

    Calvary donates school supplies for the students of School 30 and the church funds several educational and cultural programs during the school year. Through the Mitten Tree project in December, Calvary collects and distributes over 200 Christmas gifts to students in 2nd and 4th grades.

    Calvary volunteers work with students individually through the New York State Mentoring Program.

  • Matthew 25 Circle of Care

    Calvary is working with JFS to assist in the resettlement of a refugee family.

    Calvary's family of six (Mom, Dad, two sons ages 16 & 14, and two daughters ages 9 & 6) arrived in Buffalo and have moved into their new apartment. Calvary will soon learn more about the needs of the family and how volunteers can best be of assistance.

  • Hands to Hearts Knitting

    Hands to Hearts Knitting Ministry creates items for Congregational Care as well as hats and mittens for Journey's End.

  • Refugee Ministry

    Periodically, Calvary works with Journey's End to collect household items (no furniture or clothing) to furnish apartments for Afghan evacuees and refugees. 


    Each autumn, volunteers from Calvary knit warm hats, gloves and scarves for refugees unused to WNY winter weather.

  • Friends of Night People

    Calvary helps provide nutritious meals for homeless and hungry individuals. Volunteers go to the center every other month to help prepare dinner for the people who come to the agency.

    Clothing and toiletries are collected year round.


  • Family Justice Center

    Calvary assisted in the opening of the Northtown branch of the Family Justice Center, which provides counseling and help to victims of domestic abuse. Calvary donated funds, books, and furniture, and continues to donate time and supplies, to make the Center a success. 


  • United Thank Offering

    Calvary members contribute generously to this nationwide program which provides assistance to needy people worldwide. The United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through UTO, men, women and children nurture the habit of giving thanks to God by recognizing and naming daily blessings.
