Several Amherst women’s sports teams (basketball, lacrosse, golf, volleyball, soccer, tennis, softball, field hockey, ice hockey and track and field) are partnering with a local non-profit organization, Amherst Community Connections, to participate in its campaign: “Restoring Dignity for Homeless Women, Period.” The campaign will use the money it raises to secure sanitary items, condoms, undergarments and housing help for homeless women in Amherst. Amherst Community Connections aims to raise at least $5,000 to move women who have found employment into safe, sustainable housing.
