The renaissance of the Buffalo-Niagara Region is continuing to flourish and beginning to reach people in parts of our communities who face the greatest challenges. The Buffalo Urban League continues to move forward, connecting this growth to some of the most challenged communities in the Buffalo-Niagara region. As we reflect on our past, we use this experience to build a better future for people in the Buffalo-Niagara region; a better future where every individual has opportunities to realize their full potential and enjoy a quality of life in this community.

On Monday, October 31, 2022, Power 93.7 WBLK, the William-Emslie YMCA, and other community partners hosted Cans For Candy, an annual indoor trick-or-treating event inside of a safe and well-lit building. Each child who was trick-or-treating was requested to bring one (1) canned good or non-perishable food item to benefit Feedmore WNY.
