News

As the Westmoreland community continues to recover from the April 30 tornado, residents are coming together to bring new and enhanced recreation options for youth and families. This phase of improvement focuses on installing a new play structure at City Park. The goal is to raise $10,000 by July 5.

Support this effort by donating to the Westmoreland Parks and Community Fund. Your donation can go farther by participating in a donor match. A family has agreed to match the first $5,000 in gifts. Your donation will help provide a safe and fun place for children and families to be together in the community.

The CCF does a lot of work behind the scenes to support our local communities.

The Care Catalog was last Fall, but it made quite a splash and ripples are still occurring. Today, KSNT reported on the USD 322 Onaga High School weightlifting room equipment updates funded through the Catalog. There were multiple donors; the story on the 5:00 news focused on Little Apple Toyota, by far the largest donor. The news clip didn’t show the entire crowd of Buffalo proud: several coaches, five students, and CCF. CCF treated all to a pizza lunch following the interview. A huge thank you to all the donors, especially Little Apple Toyota!
