Weinberg Campus Residents present “A Summer Salute to Soldiers”

Amherst, NY – Weinberg Campus residents have joined forces to help support our troops abroad.  Residents are continuing the mission of the late Gilda Tunis, a Weinberg resident, who started the effort two years ago to help bring letters, personal care items and packages to soldiers in need.  Those efforts have generated over 95 care packages sent to troops to date.

Throughout the month of July, residents at Weinberg Campus are collecting items for male and female troops including: white socks, hard candy, toothpaste, books, mouthwash, cards, soap, magazines, razors, game books (crossword, Sudoku) & toiletries.

Collection bins are located at the Main Entrance of the campus at 2700 North Forest Road in Getzville (follow signs to Main Entrance).

The effort will culminate with a free outdoor concert on Sunday, July 24th beginning at 1:45 pm with the singing of the National Anthem.  At 2:00 pm, Rumondo Music will perform patriotic songs and more.  The concert will be held near the Gazebo by the Main entrance and is free and open to the public.  The public is asked to bring their own lawn chairs.  If raining, concert will held indoors at the Campus Deli.

Weinberg Campus is a thoughtfully and uniquely designed residential community focused on providing a continually innovative approach to senior living, enabling area seniors to enjoy a healthy, independent and engaged lifestyle.  Located in Amherst, Weinberg Campus provides a variety of living options and customizable care programs to meet the needs of senior living, all in one location.
