Before he died May 14, Ezra Castro — more commonly known in Buffalo as Pancho Billa — asked that people wishing to honor his memory donate backpacks and school supplies to students in need. The result? More than $100,000 was donated to the Teacher's Desk, a nonprofit that does just what Castro asked. More than 250 volunteers helped pack 5,000 backpacks June 10 at the Toyota Club at New Era Field.
