Bills Mafia donates to NWLA food bank after White’s injury at the end of the season
BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) – Fans of the Buffalo Bills, better known as the Bills Mafia, are rallying once again to raise money for a good cause.
The Bills have announced that cornerback Tre’Davious White tore his ACL in Thursday’s game against the New Orleans Saints and as a result, he will miss the remainder of the season.
White, a 2017 Bills first-round pick, is from Shreveport, La., And attended Louisiana State University.
Shortly after the announcement that White would miss the rest of the season, the Twitter user Danielle Lipinski tweeted to Del reid, co-founder of Bills Mafia and director of 26 Shirts, and the charity InvoicesMafiaBabes that Bills Mafia should donate to charity to boost White’s morale.
BillsMafiaBabes responded that the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank was the charity of choice.
As a result, BillsMafiaBabes announced a donation of $ 27 to the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank because White is number 27.
Reid went on to say “Let’s do this” and included a link to donate.
Donations have since started pouring in, with Reid retweeting many people who provide screenshots of their successful donation.

This is not the first time that Bills Mafia has made a donation to support a good cause.
In October, Oishei Children’s Hospital unveiled a wing in honor of Patricia Allen, the grandmother of Bills quarterback Josh Allen. The “Patricia Allen Pediatric Recovery Wing” was announced by Oishei in November 2020 after Bills fans donated nearly $ 700,000 to the hospital in Patricia’s honor after her death. Due to the influx of donations, Oishei also announced the establishment of the “Patricia Allen Fund” and just before the end of 2020, the fund exceeded $ 1 million in donations.
In January, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had to leave the Ravens’ playoff game against the Buffalo Bills with a concussion protocol. After Jackson left and the Bills won, a Bills fan on Reddit shared that he donated $ 25 to Jackson’s favorite charity, the Louisville Chapter of Blessings in a Backpack.
The organization said more than 18,450 fans took part in the viral donation campaign and raised $ 553,000. In April, Blessings in a Backpack decided to donate it and donated 10,095 bags of food to the Western New York Boys & Girls Clubs Collaborative, five selected clubs around WNY and four local elementary schools.
