About Kids Day

Kids Day is on Tuesday, April 29th this year and on that day thousands of volunteers will help us sell a special Kids Day edition of The Buffalo News. The proceeds from the sale of this special edition are presented to Variety, the Children’s Charity, to benefit Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, the Robert Warner MD Center for Children with Special Needs and Children’s Charities of Western New York.

In 2014, we celebrate our 32nd year of raising money. Since 1983, Kids Day contributions have totaled more than $4.2 million – helping children all across Western New York.

Thousands of partners join The Buffalo News in this huge county-wide initiative, including hundreds of corner captains, thousands of volunteers and, of course, the more than 100,000 donors that help to make this special fundraising campaign such a success.
