A big thank you to all the former NARH employee's who have been volunteering time at the Berkshire Food Project free meal's program. It has been such a pleasure for us to have you in our kitchen. We look forward to our continued partnership.
Hello former employees of NARH. I will be at the American Legion tomorrow evening with a limited amount of gift cards. These gift cards are for those who were laid off last March. Sorry, not for those receiving pensions.
I have such good news to share. Our community has been so supportive of this fundraising event. I can't even put into words how grateful everyone who receives these gift cards are for all the love and support they have received. Today a donation of $3205.00 was given as a result of the benefit concert sponsored by the Churches of Williamstown and Williams College Gospel Choir.
St. Johns of Williamstown also sent in another donation of $487.00 from their Easter Sunday collection. So I have more gift cards if anyone is in need. call me at 664-7378.
For those of you who missed out on today's gift card distribution, I will be getting a few more tomorrow then again next week. Please feel free to call my office at 664-7378.
Tomorrow the Berkshire Food Project will be offering free fresh produce and fruit along with gift cards to former NARH employees. We will be in the the community room of Mountain One Bank from 11:00-2:00. Bring your empty supermarkets bags!
Tomorrow along with the gift cards I will have fresh produce and fruit available to anyone who would like to take some home.

As I was walking threw Mountain One bank on my way to their community room to meet NARH former employees, I was stopped by a young lady I'd say in her 80's traveling in a wheel chair. She said " Valerie, I have been looking for you." She told me she wanted to donated to the gift card campaign and handed me $20.00. I asked her if she was sure she could afford it and she said even if she couldn't, she wanted me to share this gift with someone. This generosity brought tears to my eyes. I am so proud to live in such a generous, loving community and to call North Adams my home.
All Saints Episcopal Church just donated $500.00!
Thank you everyone. I gave out most of the donations today but there are still people in need so please continue to donate..
Today I will begin giving out gift cards to people who lost their jobs at NARH. It has been such a humbling experience for me listening to their stories. They all express appreciation in having such a supportive community. I said it is the community showing our appreciation for all they have done for us.

This is my nephew Sonny Bullett. He has been working for NARH for several years and was told 3 days ago that the hospital was closing. He along with over 500 other employees are not going to receive any employment benefits for many weeks. The Berkshire Food Project is collecting donations to purchase gift cards to help with daily living expenses. This is a shock to our community. Please help us help them by making a donation to this fundraising campaign. All donations made, are tax deductible.
