The 540WMain Cares Initiative partners with a 2nd organization: 1872 Cafe.

540WMain Cares is a collaborative initiative that allows our community center to  partner with local and regional corporate sponsors in an effort to increase our reach and fundraise in the Greater Rochester community and beyond.

1872 Café is our second corporate collaborator for the month of February.

Managed  by General Manager Samantha Councilman 1872 Café has hosted holistic wellness events that collected donations for The Rochester Afterschool Program throughout the month of February.

I am thrilled that 1872 Cafee has partnered with us to help us continue our mission of providing culturally rich academic programming, workshops, and events to Rochester’s Westside and the Historic Susan B. Anthony District. Sam & amazing team have been dedicated to supporting our efforts from day one.
