On Sunday, October 20, Shelter Sunday is celebrating its 30th year!

Shelter Sunday is a one day door-to-door solicitation of Amherst neighborhoods.  On the third Sunday in October, community and student volunteers walk door-to-door through the neighborhoods of Amherst. After gathering in the Curry Hicks Cage on the UMass Campus, they are organized into groups of 3-5 people and are then sent out to canvass. Within a few hours they visit over 3,400 residences.

This year, proceeds from Shelter Sunday will benefit Craig’s Doors and Not Bread Alone. Both organizations help members of our community who are in need.
