October is Polish American Heritage Month and holds a special place in the hearts of the Polish American community. It is a testament to the sacrifices and contributions of our compatriots in the service of both their native and adopted homelands and represents the community’s ability to make our voices heard as citizens of the United States of America.
We, Polish Americans, proudly maintain the traditions and memories of our Polish homeland and cherish the gift of our adopted country, the United States. The histories of Poland and the United States are intertwined through shared heroes and values. In remembering the sacrifices of our ancestors for the cause of freedom both in Poland and abroad, we Polish Americans have a unique passion for the ideals that undergird the freedoms and liberties enshrined in the United States Constitution. We are proud of the contributions made by Polish Americans in defense of these ideals and values.
Holding the examples of our predecessors before us, our community resolves to maintain its devotion to liberty, freedom, and the prosperity of both the United States of America and Poland. This October, let us celebrate our heritage and commemorate the unbreakable legacy of those who forged the path for us by donating to the Polish American Congress’ Polish American 1000 campaign. The first 1,000 Polish Americans from across the U.S. who contribute $100 in order to support the PAC will receive a certificate. You have the option to donate in honor or memory of another Polish American. In memoriam contributors will receive a certificate with the name of the person honored to keep as a memento. Follow the footsteps of Polish American Congress Executive Committee members who all contributed to the campaign and take action now: https://buff.ly/3yITq97
