GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires is holding an online auction from March 16-31 to raise money for its educational programs and services for nonprofits.

The "Nonprofit Necessities" online auction features items needed by nonprofit organizations as well as things that appeal to the general public.

"Our local businesses and consultants are very generous in their support of our programs because they value the contributions of nonprofits to our community," NPC founder Liana Toscanini said.

The NPC is accepting donations of products and services through March 31.

Nonprofits and their board members are encouraged to bid on practical items they might not normally be able to afford such as consulting, billboard advertising, bylaw review, event photography or marketing services. 

The public can also bid on everything from local honey to a week on Cape Cod to a "microneedling" rejuvenating skin treatment. Visit npcberkshires.org to learn more and connect to the auction.

Berkshire HorseWorks Gets Grant to Support COVID-19 Responders

RICHMOND, Mass. — Berkshire HorseWorks Inc. has received $10,000 from the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund for Berkshire County to support the "Healers and Horses" Program.
 
The program was created specifically to help local health-care workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic acclimate and reintegrate during and after their experiences dealing with the virus. The program's goal is to provide a safe platform where participants can identify, explore and process their feelings in a mutually supportive environment among other health-care workers and family. 
 
Exercises will address trauma, offer outlets for expression and develop positive coping skills healthcare workers can use while still in the midst of the crisis. Berkshire HorseWorks uses the Eagala Model of equine-assisted psychotherapy, which will be used in the "Healers and Horses" program. It integrates horses in ground-based, metaphorical activities and is facilitated by a licensed mental health professional and equine specialist.
