Home-Life Holiday Food Baskets
Each year, working closely with SHARE and the Amherst Lions Club, AJWC prepares food baskets for those in need in our community. We are currently in need of monetary donations to help fund this effort to feed over 30 Amherst families a wonderful holiday dinner. If you are able to help, please consider making a donation to this event.
The Amherst Starter Program
It began in 2019 with the simple idea of supplying kitchen kits for young people who had been in foster care and were now on their own. Then the need for furniture and more became apparent. We saw the opportunity to share donations with those who truly needed them.
