Berkshire Pay It Forward Collecting Donations to Provide Meals for Those Impacted by COVID-19. The First Community Meal Event Scheduled for this Saturday, April 25 at Wohrle’s in Pittsfield

Berkshire Pay It Forward is a committee of volunteers who have mobilized to support and provide nutritious meals to families who have been rendered unemployed by COVID-19 layoffs.

Berkshire Pay It Forward is collecting donations to cover the cost of food at their planned Community Meal events, which will provide prepackaged meals to community members in need.

The first event is scheduled to take place this Saturday, April 25, 2-4 pm at Wohrle’s Cash and Carry, 1619 East Street, Pittsfield. They will have 50 prepackaged meals to hand out to families facing unemployment due to COVID-19 layoffs. Available on first come first serve basis.

Each package contains 4 servings. **FREE OF CHARGE**
In order to maintain proper social distancing and safety protocol, meals will be prepackaged and ready for a drive up to pick up; all volunteers will be wearing masks and gloves.

Berkshire Pay It Forward is asking those who are able to donate to this cause. No amount is too little or too much. The more money we raise the more families we can help. With your continued donations, we can make a difference together, Paying it Forward.

There is an account for donations to Berkshire Pay it Forward, set up at Greylock Federal Credit Union.
