BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Buffalo church is teaming with city and state officials to help protect against COVID-19 and assist young mothers across the area.
Dozens of people visited a pop-up vaccination clinic Saturday at the Durham Memorial A.M.E.-Zion Church Outreach Center.
But it wasn't just to receive one of the 400 Pfizer vaccines given out on Eagle Street that day.
The center also hosted a diaper drive, collecting pull-ups, baby items, and feminine products for the Durham Maternal Stress-free Zone.
The local non-profit provides free birth planning, breast feeding education, and other health services to expecting mothers.
"Since 2000, the Durham Maternal Stress-Free Zone has served over 2,000 young moms from our community,” said Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown.
The Durham Maternal Stress-Free Zone is open on Eagle Street on Wednesday and Thursday nights from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
