Carolyn Holstein: Support the ‘heart’ of Amherst

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Scott Merzbach wrote an interesting and helpful story about how to assist the business community in Amherst survive this deadly COVID-19 period. Both the Amherst Chamber of Commerce and the Business Improvement District have joined forces to seek financial support from foundations and grants for Amherst’s small businesses.

But we citizens can help as well by donating to Downtown Amherst Foundation, 35 South Pleasant St., Amherst, or donations can be made online at downtownamherstfoundation.org.

Amherst restaurants, Hastings, Zannas, Amherst Books and others have been with us a long time — they are the heart of our beloved Amherst and we need to give them our support in return at this time.
