Donate Page – Home for Holidays Campaign

- Year end campaign for Matt Urban Center -

Home is where we have dignity. Creating this sense of dignity is key to the mission of The Matt Urban Center.  Through each of our human services programs, we work to provide and reinforce a sense of home for members of our community.

Our Home for the Holidays campaign is a call for our supporters in the community to help us continue providing these resources to offer a sense of home to those in need. To take those feelings of joy and gratitude in celebrating what we have, and to pay it forward by ensuring that every Buffalonian has a home they deserve. Your contribution can provide:



Personal hygiene essentials
Supplies for afterschool youth
Food for our food pantry
Materials to repair a home


We're very excited to be hosting two in-person fundraising events this year as part of our larger holiday campaign! Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for event updates!
