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.
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.
1872 Café is a community meeting space, event, space, and café that offers donuts, pizza, salads, smoothies and coffee at low prices. The café is located at 431 West Main Street just a hop, skip, and a sjymp east of 540 West Main. It is located near the voting booth used by Rochester own Susan B. Anthony when she illegally voted in her fight for women’s rights.
