Univera Healthcare Donates 280 Blankets to
St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy
Univera Healthcare delivered a donation of 280 fleece blankets to St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy on Buffalo's east side to help keep their residents and others warm during the cold winter weather. St. Luke's Mission of Mercy participates in the "Code Blue" emergency plan established by the City of Buffalo and the Western New York Homeless Coalition. When temperatures drop sufficiently - or the wind chill is especially bitter - Code Blue is announced on local TV and radio stations. St. Luke's and other participating organizations then open their doors even wider to provide shelter for anyone, especially the chronically homeless who often do not want to reside in shelters.
