BUW September Beneficiary of Big Y Community Bag Program

Berkshire United Way has been selected as a beneficiary of the Big Y Community Bag Program for the month of September.

The Big Y Community Bag Program, which launched in January 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal of making a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.

We were selected as the September beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Pittsfield Big Y, located at 200 West Street, Suite 4. We will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during September, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag (through which you can designate a donation to us at any time of the year).

“We are excited and humbled to be September’s beneficiary for the Big Y Community Bag program,” said Candace Winkler, president and CEO of Berkshire United Way. “Your donation through this program helps us meet the needs of children, youth and families in our community during this challenging time.”
