Amherstburg Community Services receives $1,000 grant

By Jolene Perron

Amherstburg Community Services (ACS) was thrilled to hear that they were granted $1,000 this past week in a Windsor contest.

Rose City Ford, a Windsor car dealership, decided to celebrate 30 years in business with non-profit organizations. Their contest deadline was in the middle of May, allowing three people on a non-bias committee to read through entries to decide who should receive the money. Each of the 30 days in June, they have been giving away $1,000 a day for a grand total of $30,000, and will continue until the end of June.

Over 200 not for profit organizations entered their draw in hopes to win.

Kathy DiBartlomeo, executive director, was filled with joy when she was called and told the great news.

“It’s just so nice to be recognized for all the hard work we do. Out of all the entries, they recognized us.” said DiBartlomeo.

ACS heard about the contest from one of their drivers and decided to take part in it. As a non-profit organization, ACS is always seeking recognition and assistance for the work they do and services they provide. ACS offers many different types of programs such as computer courses, Meals on Wheels, Care-A-Van and so much more. They always make sure that they do all that they can to help everyone in our community who is in need.

Their grant money will be put towards administrative expenses to help keep their services low in cost or free. As part of the application process, they had to specify where the $1,000 would be spent.

ACS would like to thank the community for all of their continued support and Rose City Ford for the grant which is more than greatly appreciated. ACS is located at 601 Sandwich St. They can also be reached at (519) 736 – 5471 for more information about their services.
