NEW! ANNOUNCING NORTHERN BERKSHIRE CARES DAY, TUESDAY, APRIL 21

Friends,
 
We all continue to encourage people to stay home unless absolutely necessary, and to practice physical distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, but there are still things we all can do to perform acts of kindness for our families, friends, neighbors, our first responders and front line workers, and people battling the virus or mourning loved ones who have passed away. Even as we ask our Northern Berkshire community to make sacrifices, we hear from people who want to help. So, let’s create an easy, public, and most of all, safe way to invite and encourage that help.
 
Earlier this week, Mayor Marty Walsh and the City of Boston marked One Boston Day. This is an annual tradition that celebrates the resiliency, generosity, and strength demonstrated by the people of Boston and those around the world. Recognizing the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Walsh has invited Bostonians “to stand together by staying apart,” to download a checklist of acts of kindness, and to use the use the hashtag #onebostonday to share their acts of kindness with the world.
 
This is a great idea, and one we easily can emulate to activate, celebrate, and engage the compassion, resilience, and strength of our Northern Berkshire community. It is in that spirit that I invite you to join me and other community leaders and residents from across the Northern Berkshires in supporting and promoting the first Northern Berkshire Cares Day on Tuesday, April 21.
 
Using One Boston Day as a model we’ve created a Northern Berkshire checklist and will promote #NorthBerkCares so that people can share their acts of kindness with the community and to prove that now, as always, the Northern Berkshires stand together, and that no matter what challenges we face we always look out for our neighbors.
