A note from the Healthy Communities 2030! Team

Dear Reader,

Thank you for taking the time to use this resource! Our Healthy Communities 2030! Team, with help from community partners, have developed a series of wellness kits to support year-round health and wellness. This B-WELL Fall Wellness Kit is a follow up from our B-WELL@HOME Wellness Kit and Summer Wellness Kit to support our youth, adult, and older adult populations in our communities!

2020 has presented challenges amidst the COVID-19 pandemic; however, our community has joined together to prevent the spread while maintaining and enhancing our physical, mental, social, economic, & environmental health!

We hope this Fall Wellness Kit provides you with resources and information to make this time easier, fun, and health-enhancing! Use the navigation tool below to check out what interests you, and we encourage you to explore the resources we outline in the kit! 

With any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please contact us at BeActive@City-Buffalo.org or (716) 851-4052. Thank you and B-WELL!

Sincerely,

Lucy Connery                             Phil Haberstro                             Michaela O’Brien
