We hope that you all are staying warm- winter is finally here! That’s why
first and foremost, we want to remind you that our amazing members who’ve
organized our Bread and Roses campaign will be finishing up with shopping
(using any cash donations we received) by end of day tomorrow (12/9), so
that we can begin to package individual parcels to be distributed this
Saturday in downtown Pittsfield.
Volunteer shifts are filled at this time, but we encourage anyone who can
donate to do so now so that we can make the greatest impact this saturday
in feeding as many as we can! Donations are easily made via Venmo if you
have the app @Berkshires_DSA. If that doesn’t work for you, you can contact
us about a check or cash contribution which we can figure out a way to get
from you at your convenience. Also, if you are in need of food, we
encourage you to come help yourself at the distribution! For more
information about the Bread & Roses Food Drive, please visit our website

contributed and organized- this campaign has been such a success already!
