The Amherst Council On Aging (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. I'm emailing town departments and community businesses to ask the following:

Would you staff be willing to donate to the program?

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 (

Thank you for your consideration. Your participation in this program will brighten the life of an older adult this holiday season.
