Berkshire Money Management Sponsors Match Campaign To Benefit Thanksgiving Angels

Print Story | Email Story
DALTON, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management (BMM) is partnering with the Thanksgiving Angels, a collaboration of 19 food pantries, organizations, and faith communities, to provide more than 1,500 Berkshire families with a full Thanksgiving meal in their own homes.
 
"We really ramped up our efforts to address food insecurity as the pandemic began," said BMM founder and CEO, Allen Harris. "In years past, the BMM team physically handed out turkeys and Wohrle's gift certificates around Thanksgiving time. But the good people at the Thanksgiving Angels have perfected the logistics behind reaching out to and feeding thousands of Berkshire families. To have the biggest impact, we decided to team up with the Thanksgiving Angels just as they began their fundraising campaign this year."
 
BMM's donation of $25,000 will help the Thanksgiving Angels double their donation dollars. The donation will be spent at Wohrle's. 
 
This year, according to the Thanksgiving Angels committee, more requests for meals have come in due largely to the impact of the pandemic and ensuing unemployment and housing insecurity.
 
To make a donation to the Thanksgiving Angels, please visit www.southchurchpittsfield.org, and select "Thanksgiving Angels" from the Donate drop-down. Or mail your donation to: Thanksgiving Angels, c/o South Congregational Church, 110 South Street, Pittsfield, MA 01201.
