Mayor Bianchi showed up ready to work Tuesday afternoon as he helped paint the Habitat for Humanity office.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mayor Daniel Bianchi honored those who donate their time to helping others by doing the same.

On Tuesday, Bianchi helped paint the Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity's office with volunteers from the AmeriCorps' VISTA program and Senior Corps programs.

"The strength of a community is often measured by the volunteers who give of themselves to help those in need, or to help those less fortunate," Bianchi said.

"Pittsfield is a very rich community by this measure. Thousands of our citizens help others and make Pittsfield a truly wonderful community."

The afternoon of painting was the mayor's way of honoring the second annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service.

The AmeriCorps program has sent two volunteers to the city to help the Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity program. Habitat for Humanity just recently celebrated the completion of yet another home in the city.

Meanwhile, other AmeriCorps volunteers from Berkshire Community College are working in the school system and the Berkshire United Way with tutoring, early education and service-learning.
 
The Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service was first celebrated last April with 832 mayors participating.
