Claus for a Cause
Thursday, November 2, 2023
Amherst Council on Aging (ACOA) will be sponsoring this year's Claus for a Cause program. The ACOA will be collecting donations of warm clothes, puzzle books, tea, cocoa, candies, lotion, lip balm, etc... that will be packed into gift bags and delivered to older adults.
Cardboard collection boxes available the first week of November. Donations would be collected until December 8th.
For those interested, we have two volunteer opportunities for this program.
-Bag packing: bags will be packed on Tuesday, December 12th. Interested individuals are invited to drop in during the Senior Center's open hours (9:00am-3:00pm) and join our merry crew.
-Delivery drivers: we are recruiting volunteers to delivery bags to seniors' houses the week of December 18th. It's a wonderful opportunity to make a meaningful connection this season. Interested parties should contact Julia MacFadzen (email@example.com)
