PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management President Allen Harris announced Monday, Nov. 12, that the company will be holding its Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway on Friday, Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its office on 392 Merrill Road.
 
Berkshire Money Management will be giving away a total of 300 turkeys to needy individuals and families throughout Berkshire County.
 
"We all have so much to be thankful for and we hope this event will help brighten the holidays for those who otherwise may not be able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner," Harris said. "Everyone deserves to be able to enjoy a nice warm, turkey with the fixings for the holiday and we hope we can help make that a reality here in the Berkshires."
 
In addition to the turkeys, Berkshire Money Management will be giving out gift certificates to Wohrle's Foods for all the fixings to make the Thanksgiving dinner complete.
 
"If you or anyone you know could use a boost this holiday season, please send them to Berkshire Money Management on Friday for the turkey giveaway," said Chief Operations Officer Stacey Carver. "We will do our best to get the word out to those who can benefit, however, word-of-mouth is the best way to spread the message. So, please tell your friends, family and co-workers so this event can reach as many needy families as possible."
 
The turkeys will be available in the Berkshire Money Management parking lot, which is accessible from Laurel Street off of Merrill Road (across from Plastics Avenue), and will be offered first-come, first-serve.

South County Programs, State Park Fund Secured for FY2020

LENOX, Mass. — State Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli says some $350,000 has been procured through his efforts in the state's 2020 budget for programs in his 4th Berkshire District, including the Berkshire Youth Development Project, Greenagers, and Community Access to the Arts.
 
"BYDP, CATA, and Greenagers do so much good work in the Southern Berkshires, adding real value to our communities in terms of positive youth development, environmental advocacy, and special needs integration," said Pignatelli. "I wanted to make sure we highlighted these organizations through the state budget to put an emphasis on some of the best qualities the Berkshires have to offer to our commonwealth."
 
Funded at $43.1 billion, H. 4000 makes major investments in education, housing, substance use disorder services, health care, and other areas while projecting a more than $476 million deposit into the Stabilization Fund – bringing the fund's balance to more than $3 billion to safeguard the future of vital programs and services.
 
The Berkshire Youth Development Project line item, funded to Railroad Street Youth Project (RSYP) in Great Barrington, has been a Pignatelli priority for the past several budgets, supporting the collaboration between RSYP in South County, Berkshire United Way in Pittsfield, and the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition in North Adams to prevent drug dependency and promote positive youth development for a smoother transition to adulthood.
