    ​Little Free Food Pantry

    On November 20, 2021, we proudly opened our little free food pantry at 1910 Falls Street in Niagara Falls, it's open to the public and we ask that you take what you need and donate what you can. 

Because of YOUR kindness, generosity and belief in us, we have been able to donate over $500,000 through April 4, 2023, to organizations, families and individuals in our community. We are humbled and forever grateful, you inspire us to continue working hard for our community. 

Thank you so much Lydia Dominick and the WGRZ - Channel 2, Buffalo team for hosting us on the WNY Living segment of the WNY Living show which aired April 15, 2023 and for allowing us to tell our story. 
We’re so proud to be part of such a caring, giving community, it really does take a village.

The family and friends of John founded the John J. Fiore Memorial Golf Tournament in 2009 (incorporated as The John Fiore Foundation in 2019 and we received 501c3 status in 2020) as a way to honor his memory after he passed away on Flight 3407 in Clarence, New York on February 12, 2009. 

John dedicated his life to his family and his country, spending 30 years serving the United States in both the Marine Corps and the Air Force He fought for our freedom in Vietnam, Desert Storm and had 2 tours of duty in the Iraqi War. John retired from active duty as Chief Master Sergeant in 2006  and was due to retire from his civilian career at Washington Mills in 2011. Our hero continues to be sorely missed. 

John always had a special place in his heart for children, having spearheaded fundraisers for Children's Hospital and various local organizations.  As of April 4, 2023, we have been able to raise $277,500 in our first thirteen years for the Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo. In addition, we've raised $56,000 for WNY Heroes, $20,000 for SABAH and $146,500 for other organizations and local families in need. That brings our donation total to $500,000. The family and friends of John thank everyone that has played a role in our success, we couldn't do it without the love and support of so many wonderful people.
