You make our community stronger.
Berkshire South Regional Community Center depends on you
Have you ever received a call from a friend for help? How have you responded? Each day members of our community walk into Berkshire South seeking an array of services; calling for help.
And because of YOU, their lives are better.
Through your membership and continued support, you are working together with the Community Center to change the quality of life for those in our community.
While it’s true that many around us have much to be thankful for, so many more are just getting by. Because of the rural nature of our area, many also feel isolated and alone. You may be surprised to learn that for many local families, their annual average household income is just $16,504. By supporting Berkshire South, you are creating a home away from home, where families and individuals can feel welcome and supported.
As 2017 comes to a close, please remember that your donation will make a significant impact; from giving young children the best possible start in their early education to opening doors for those in financially disadvantaged homes. The Community Center is the place where many find comfort, relief, social connectedness, and a sense of self-worth. That in turn provides our community with healthy, productive individuals who are engaged and contributing to society as a whole.
Yes, YOU are helping to create a prosperous community with your support of Berkshire South.
You have helped the Center accomplish so much this year. You participated in our matching gift appeal last spring; you attended many of our events held last winter and again this past summer. Multiple foundations and local businesses have supported the programs and services accessed by our youth, seniors, those with adaptive needs, and families.
We asked for your help and YOU gave it. Thank you.
You may be unaware that the annual fundraising need for Berkshire South is a large number. This fiscal year we need to raise $733,875. We’re close, but not there yet.
It’s YOUR time. Between today and December 31st – that’s only a few weeks – we still need to raise $218,774. It is necessary for all to participate in this critical appeal to reach goal, so we can continue to provide the services you deserve and expect from your community center.
Fundamentally, your gift to Berkshire South protects an important gathering place for your family, your friends, and your neighbors. You give us the means to meet the needs and demands of our community.
There are other gyms. There are other pools. There are other childcare programs. But there is nothing else like the Center. Berkshire South has proven, uniquely, that our community relies on us and we, in turn, rely on our community. We cannot do it without you, and with us, you will continue to help others thrive.
PS. Please help us reach goal. Berkshire South is a Section 501(c)3 nonprofit and your gift is tax- deductible.
