http://ismex.com/categories/basic/ Each year, Buffalonians of Polish heritage gather to celebrate the Dyngus Day holiday following Easter. Our organization chooses to celebrate our roots as the Polish Community Center of Buffalo with a call to action: “Do Good on Dyngus Day.”
Throughout the month of April, we are hosting a fundraising campaign with every donation matched by our generous campaign sponsor, Dolce Panepinto, Attoneys at Law. Proceeds from this effort will go to support our community programs, which provide essential services to residents of Buffalo’s East Side.
As part of our commitment to “Do Good On Dyngus Day,” we will be donating a portion of proceeds to our neighbors at DNIPRO Ukrainian Cultural Center in support of their efforts to provide humanitarian aid to those adversely affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine.
The Matt Urban Center has been proudly serving East Buffalo, the Town of Cheektowaga and West Seneca for the past 45 years. We continue to fulfill our mission of revitalizing neighborhoods, serve families and change lives by bringing together public and private resources in an effort to assist community residents in becoming self-sustaining.
Our Commitment to Racial Justice
The Matt Urban Center is committed to promoting racial equity and acknowledges historical systems of oppression including institutional and systemic racism which continue to this day. The Matt Urban Center will take active steps in addressing racial inequity as an organization and as it relates to the community we serve through training, stakeholder engagement, self-assessment, advocacy and intentional policy making. The Matt Urban Center recognizes that not actively combatting racism is equal to complicity.
