Dear Friends, The annual Polish American Congress of Michigan Radiothon is here! It is scheduled for Saturday, November 5th on WNZK Radio (690 AM) from 8:00 – 10 a.m. Donors who pledge through November 5, or call 313-365-9400 with a pledge on that day, will be publicly recognized during the Radiothon.

The PAC-MI is a non-profit umbrella organization, part of the national PAC organization, which brings together organizations and individuals to work toward the civic, social, cultural, and educational betterment of all Polish-Americans.

For over 70 years our mission has been to promote and preserve Polish heritage and culture, to protect and defend the good name of Americans of Polish descent and of Poland, to empower Polish-Americans to achieve success in life, to facilitate interactions and information- sharing among Polonia organizations and the community.

The Michigan Division sponsors the Annual Polish Day Parade in Hamtramck, our Scholarship Committee awards thousands of dollars in scholarships, the Charitable Foundation supports events that develop future leaders for Polonia; PAC-MI’s Political Action Committee strengthens Michigan Polonia’s influence on the local political scene.

On a regular basis, PAC provides free legal services with specialized designated attorneys and free health screenings, assists with translations and certain immigration services, maintains a Detroit Polonia events calendar, and showcases our culture and heritage at various venues in the larger community.

We own our own building in Hamtramck since 1978 and retain a paid administrative assistant to facilitate the division’s work.

We truly need your financial assistance to continue and to expand our projects. Your generosity, as in the past, is crucial. We are counting on your support of the Radiothon, but we also ask that you remember the Polish American Congress – Michigan Division in your will.

If you are not a member, please join us by calling the office for an application; annual dues are $35.00. Your interest and talents are most welcome.  For more information please visit our website: www.pacmi.org, like us on Facebook, or call (313) 365-9400.

Thank You and God Bless!

Anna Bankowski, President
