Rochester, NY, May 4, 2021 — Baden Street Settlement is celebrating 120 years of service in the Rochester Northeast sector. To commemorate the 120-year milestone, Baden Street Settlement is hosting a “drive by” birthday party from 1:20pm – 3pm on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, where the community can donate funds to support its mission and organizational growth. The official location of the event will be at the Baden Park on Upper Falls Blvd., marked by a tent with balloons. Staff and volunteers will be positioned between the opening in the fence not far from the Baden Park sign on the Upper Fall Blvd side and look forward to meeting and greeting members of the neighborhood and key community supporters, who continue to form the backbone of Baden’s longevity.
Throughout the last century, Baden Street Settlement has shown unwavering strength and support for struggling residents and helped keep people on track with their lives since 1901 when immigrants came to Baden Street Settlement to learn how to make their way in America. Baden Street Settlement has long been a pillar of strength and growth in a constantly developing and changing community.
