Berkshire Money Management Donates To Foster Families

Dalton, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management dedicates $5,000 for foster family care packages.
To assist foster families during the COVID-19 era, a group of community members fueled by local business sponsors, including Berkshire Money Management, have created and distributed care packages for more than 200 area foster families. 
Each family received a gift bag with children's masks sewn by members of the community, school and art supplies, and a gift card to a local restaurant or grocery store, including Smokey Diva's and Wohrle's Foods in Pittsfield.
"I know so many foster families in the Berkshires who have opened their whole lives to vulnerable kids who are in need of supportive and loving homes," Nichole Dupont, BMM's community development director said. "So much extra pressure has been placed on these families as area schools and childcare centers have closed. We really want to encourage other businesses and organizations to look at the many unsung heroes in our community and show support in whatever ways they can."
