2020 Season


My WNYPAA family,

2020 has been a year of constant change and adaptation for us as students, PAs, parents and citizens.  I know many of us have been affected emotionally, socially and financially with changes in our jobs, schools and just our everyday lives; But so many individuals and families have been truly devastated by COVID’s effects. It’s time for us to work together to help provide a couple families with some love, support and hope this holiday season. 

Best Self Behavioral Health (formerly Child and Adolescent Treatment services –CATS) has chosen two VERY special families (12 individuals in all) in need of our assistance.  Below please find their wish lists (note: most things on the list are basic needs NOT wants).  Please consider participating in some way – whether you give cash (which I will use to buy something off the list), a gift card  (walmart, tops, aldis, target), select a person off the list just one or two items (or buy all the items for that person), your participation is needed.

As soon as you decide what you would like to buy please email me ([email protected]) and let me know so I can take the item(s) off the list to avoid confusion and duplicate gifts.

Gifts Due: Saturday, December 12 in order to get them organized for pickup. 

Gifts can be wrapped or unwrapped but Require a label (ex. Family #1, Girl Age 12)

Drop Off: Monday-Friday between 8:00am-4:00pm at either Healthworks locations

2075 Sheridan Drive, Tonawanda or

1900 Ridge Road, west Seneca (in Aldis plaza). 


Please contact me at any time with questions. (email- [email protected] or text/call 716-432-3694.  Also if you want to mail gift cards please contact me for my home address).

THANK YOU and we wish you a very happy, healthy & safe holiday season.
