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."
 
According to a press release, Berkshire Money Management has been and will continue to support our local community during these most difficult times. 
 
BMM is an independent investment advisory firm based in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. The firm offers digital investing, business valuation, estate and retirement planning, and Social Security and Medicare coaching.

Dalton Selectman Boyle Proposes Merger of Development Panels

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
DALTON, Mass. — Selectman John Boyle on Wednesday proposed a merger of the Dalton Redevelopment Authority and the Development/Industrial Commission.
 
In a joint meeting between the panels, Boyle, who is the chair of both, reported that he is considering disbanding the DDIC and enlarging the membership of the DRA.
 
He said this would have the benefit of covering all members under the DRA's insurance policy and relieving inactive members of the DDIC who have not been responsive.
 
"There's a DRA, Dalton Redevelopment Authority with five charter members, then there's the DDIC who we co-meet with, some of you are present, some are on the DDIC, some are on the DRA," Boyle said.
