Kicking Off Our Fall Donation Drive!

Since many of our in-person volunteer opportunities have been placed on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re inviting our supporters to team up with their friends, family, and coworkers to participate in a drive to support our essential programs!
With the winter fast approaching, many of our programs serving homeless and low-income individuals and families are working to stock up on supplies needed to keep their clients clothed, warm and fed.
We’re also looking for school supplies for our Community Hub at the T.J. Dulski Center, which will provide daycare and academic support to working families whose children have to attend school remotely.
Please click here for a full list of our donation needs, as well as an option to make a monetary donation.
If you would like to coordinate a drop-off or pick-up, or would like more information, please contact Sarah Maurer, Development Director, at smaurer@urbanctr.org or (716) 893-7222 x232.
Thanks for your ongoing support for our agency and the clients we serve!

Blog: Volunteering in WNY

On June 6, our agency participated in VolunteerWNY’s initiative for National Hunger Awareness Day. We hosted a project at our Hope Center where volunteers made and packaged meals for our Homeless Outreach team to distribute to our homeless clients.

Ashley, an intern with Red Door Real Estate, participated in the project and wrote a blog about her experiences volunteering with us. Check out her blog post here.

Thank you to all our volunteers for generously donating your time to this effort! Check out the photos on our Facebook page.
