For three years, the Amherst Central School District has operated the “Tiger’s Den” food pantry which provides access to nutritional foods and household products for many families within the district. It has been a great success and welcome addition to our community, serving an average of 75 families per month.
Current highlighted needs for Fall and Back-to-School are cereal, juice boxes, granola bars, individual fruit cups or applesauce, peanut butter & jelly.
Donations can be dropped off Monday – Friday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (4007 Main Street, Eggertsville, NY 14226 next to Brunners) during office hours: 9:30 – 1:30 daily. Mailed items can be sent to that address Attn: Carolyn Catalano/Tiger’s Den
Usually, at this time of the year, the ACAF (Amherst Central Alumni Foundation, Inc.) would be making its final preparations for our annual Alumni Golf Classic at the end of July. As with most events in the region, our golf classic was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Amherst basketball program is widely known as one of the best basketball programs in all of WNY. As a result of the tremendous time and effort that all of the coaches put in with our kids as well as the incredible support of the families, alumni, and boosters, the program continues to grow and prosper. The coaches are once again planning many exciting opportunities for the players for this upcoming season. In order to accomplish their goals they need the help of the Amherst basketball community and are asking for your help supporting a fundraising campaign.
Please come out to Rob’s Comedy Playhouse on November 3rd for a great night of laughs and help support the program. See the attached flyer for details on the Amherst Basketball fundraising comedy show. I have experience with this fundraiser in the past and everyone has always commented on how much fun they had at the show. With everyone’s support this will be a great success.
Please help spread the word and circulate the attached flyer to all your friends and family. Just let me know if there are any questions.
