YOU First Day of Caring a County-wide Success

Over 200 7th and 8th grade students from throughout Berkshire County helped make Berkshire United Way's YOU First Day of Caring a success.  Students took part at MCLA in North Adams, Gladys Allen Brigham Community Center in Pittsfield, Nessacus Middle School in Dalton, Lee Middle and High School in Lee, and Berkshire South Regional Community Center in Great Barrington.  The event included role-model speaker presentations and the design and sharing of a personal crest illustrating values and goals by each individual.  Get all the details in the stories below.
