| CITY®ION C SECTION The Buffalo News Denise Jewell Gee • Assistant Managing Editor 849-4444 • [email protected] Monday, February 11, 2019 Samantha Christmann has “consumed” her life. The group was incorporated into a nonprofit, and Mats for a Mission was born. “It’s a buffer; it keeps them off the cold ground at this time of year,” and the wet ground in the spring, she said. They also can be hosed off when they get dirty. The group that will start meeting in a storefront around the corner from Paula’s Donuts in Southgate Plaza, West Seneca, is one of several in the area that make the portable sleeping mats. The mats are 3 feet by 6 feet, and about ¼-inch thick – thick enough to keep most of the cold and dampness away.
