CPE Staff Raise Funds for Food Bank, Amherst Survival Center

Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) recently collected $1,720 to support the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts and the Amherst Survival Center, according to executive director Bill McClure.

CPE staff members donated their redeemable cans and bottles throughout the year, and in November and December held four holiday fundraisers where staff contributed breakfast and lunch items, baked goods and raffle items. The proceeds were split between the two local non-profit organizations.

“We have been doing some type of outreach to the community for 4-5 years from various fundraising efforts and strong support from the CPE staff,” said McClure, who cited the efforts of office staffer Bercia Zaniewski in organizing the campaign.
