  • Brainstorm strategies for helping young people who are struggling with depression.
 
The organizers of the Friendship Center Food Pantry at 43 Eagle St. also ask for attendees to bring a non-perishable food item for donation. For more information on this forum, contact Kate Merrigan, at 413-663-7588 or kmerrigan@nbccoalition.org.
