M&T Bank will be collecting warm clothes for local families in need as part of its Gift of Warmth campaign, which recently began across its Western New York branches.

From now until Dec. 31, Western New Yorkers can drop off donations of new mittens, gloves, scarves, hats and coats at their nearest M&T Bank branch, according to a press release last week.

The Buffalo Bills helped M&T kick off this year's 31st annual campaign with a special on-field presentation during its Nov. 27 game against Jacksonville. All of the warm clothing collected benefits children and families served by The Salvation Army of Buffalo, according to the press release.

"The snowy, cold weather that has now returned to Western New York is a helpful reminder of the need to give back to our community and help our neighbors stay warm during the winter months," said Jim Jarosz, M&T Bank Group vice president for retail banking in Western New York. "Each year, M&T Bank collects about 3,500 items at local branches during our Gift of Warmth campaign, and this year, with the community's help, we're hoping to reach record levels."

Donations can be dropped off at any of the 77 M&T branches throughout Western New York. To find the nearest branch and its hours of operation, visit https://locations.mtb.com.

"So many children in our community walk to school or wait for their bus without appropriate winter-weather clothing. When times are tough for families, they're forced to make difficult economic decisions to keep their children fed and a roof over their heads. Donating to M&T Bank's Gift of Warmth campaign will provide a relief, small but important, to our neighbors in need," said Thomas Applin, executive director of Salvation Army of Buffalo.

Since 2012, the Gift of Warmth campaign has collected nearly 20,000 winter weather accessories for children and families, the release said.

Additionally, collection bins will be located at several senior and health care facilities.
