Campaign established to help the homeless

The family of a young man who was born in Tonawanda and spent his early years there has started a campaign in his memory to help the homeless in Buffalo.

Daniel Frawley was 27 years old and working with the homeless in Kansas at the time of his death in April 2014.

To honor his commitment to others, family members in Western New York are collecting supplies for “care packages” to be distributed to homeless men and women here. Donations of small-size personal care products such as toothpaste, toothbrushes and deodorant, socks, wet-wipes, prepackaged snack foods and tissues, along with gallon sized zip-bags to hold the supplies are being requested.

The packages will be distributed through the Code Blue Relief Mission, Harbor House Drop In Center and the VA Healthcare for Homeless Program. Melissa Frawley of Depew, Daniel’s aunt, is organizing the collection and collecting the donations. She can be contacted at 444-4814 or via email, More information also can be found on the project’s Facebook page,
