NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — In the wake of large amounts of gun violence in Niagara Falls, the group Niagara Falls Outreach Ministry is looking to give back to the community and help them heal in a time of tragedy.

"It's all about the people ... I lived here all my life, and I was called by God to help," said Robert Moore, the organizer of the group.

The nonprofit hosted their first giveaway last weekend on Saturday evening from 6-8p.m. on the intersection of 19th St. and Niagara St. in Niagara Falls.

"We won't be stopping anytime soon," he added.

The group gave away fresh vegetables and nonperishable groceries, alongside tolietries for anyone in the area in need.
