The Mission Committee would like to make you aware of a need right here in our own community. The Town of Amherst Youth & Recreation Department has a program, Amherst Warm Clothing Project for Children, which provides new, warm winter clothing to children whose families struggle financially. Last year 331 children here in Amherst were recipients.
Details will be published in the next North Star. We present this information for those of you who might want to get a jump on it (or have a coupon burning a hole in your pocket). If you are willing to purchase new winter clothing for children in need, contact Kathy Mobarak-Miller, Social Worker-Projects Coordinator. (716-631-7215 ext.7638 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
Kathy will match the donor’s ability to the needs of a child and give you further details. Alternately, Kathy will do the shopping if you wish to send a check. Make it out to Amherst Youth Foundation and send to:

Thank you in advance for your generosity and for seeking to meet the needs of children right here in our own community.
