South Buffalo (WKBW) Just a week before Christmas, it was a holiday surprise for a family who needed it most in South Buffalo. A special delivery of three bags of presents and boxes of food translates to smiling faces and clapping hands, things that have been absent from one South Buffalo home. Late last month, Madonna Kaminski lost her daughter Rhonda Osborne, a mother of four, to cancer.
"She was young. She fought cancer. She lost. These four moved in with me. We're doing the best we can to give them a good Christmas," Kaminski said.
So a corporation decided to step up and donate presents and food to the family just in time for Christmas. Their only request was to remain anonymous.
Dawn Bulinski delivered the gifts.
"They heard about donnas story with losing her daughter and inheriting four children, they wanted to give gifts and they do not want her to know where they're from," she said.
"It's wonderful. The generosity has been overwhelming. I didn't even realize how many people there are out there willing to help, when somebody has hit such a tragedy," Kaminski said.
A gift of presents and food, but also a token of kindness and love for the family during the holidays after such a huge loss.
"They lost the only thing they knew. And now they're lives have changed. They're with me and my family, and the stability is huge the gifts are huge. Any little kid, that still believes in the Christmas spirit is phenomenal," Kaminski said.
"It doesn't matter where they came from. It's that somebody did something about it," Bulinski added.
