- The class of 2024 would like to collect donations for the Amherst Survival Center. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, we have been unable to find a place to set up our collection boxes. We have boxes for non-perishables, toiletries, and new or gently used winter coats. If your family, or a family friend has a local business, and would be willing to let us set up one of our collection boxes at their business, please email me at bow...@arps.org and I can bring the box to your store/business. Much appreciation for any help with the class of 2024’s efforts in being able to help out those less fortunate during this difficult time as we head into the cold winter months.
