The Amherst survival center provides food, clothing, health care, referrals, and community for our neighbors in need in Amherst and neighboring towns. For every $1 donated to the Survival Center, they are able to generate $5 in services. If it wasn't for the great work all these volunteers do, our neighbors in need - the working poor, the homeless, the elderly on fixed incomes - would be in trouble. The center is mostly volunteer-run, with many of the customers volunteering as well as awesome folks in our community. Come on down and volunteer or donate at: www.amherstsurvivalcenter.org

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make it stronger.
