Amherst athletes recently turned furniture into food for a recent benefit supporting the Amherst Survival Center, and their work was the subject of a news piece on WWLP-TV.

The annual Recycled Furniture Sale, help Sept. 7, benefits the Amherst Survival Center; money raised helps provide meals and health care for the needy. 

Amherst students joined with those from other local college sports teams in helping sell, move and arrange furniture during the drive.

“It's really a bonding experience, because I know we do other things as a team: we run and everything. Just to come here and help out with the Survival Center is just something that brings the team together,” said Wrenford Thaffe ‘13, captain of Amherst’s track and field team.
