An 18-year-old white man, a believer in conspiracy theories, killed ten African-American people with an assault rifle on Saturday in a Buffalo supermarket.
Dressed in black shirts, which read “Choose love,” the Bills players helped serve meals and laid flowers at the scene of the killings.
"It's important for us to come out and show our support, and reflect on what's happened in our community," Sabers winger Kyle Okposo said.
The Bills Foundation said in a statement that $200,000 will be donated to the Buffalo Community Response Fund, an NGO created “to address the immediate and long-term needs of our community, including systemic issues that have marginalized communities of color. ".
Another donation of $200,000 will be given directly to various NGOs that help people in emergency situations, especially those who live in the neighborhood affected by the killings and who cannot afford food.
