Your donation will support a special care package project

** This fundraiser has ended **

We're joining forces with NAMI Berkshire County to put together care packages for The Brien Center residential homes. We kicked off a two-week donation collection on #GivingTuesday.

You can donate specifically to this project through Tuesday, December 13. You can donate through our Facebook fundraiser or click the orange donate button above and check off the Giving Tuesday designation.

If you'd like to donate items for this project, we have a box at our office (200 South Street, Pittsfield). We will then work with a local youth group (TBD) to put together these care packages.

NAMI Berkshire County has provided a list of items being collected: Pocket planners, note pads/journals (no wires please), pens/pencils, socks, hats/gloves, slippers, games (for one), puzzle books/Sudoku/word search, lip balm, playing cards, travel size shampoo/conditioner, hand cream, healthy snacks (single serving), candy/mints/gum, granola bars, hair accessories.

NAMI Berkshire County's mission is to provide free support, education and advocacy to everyone in Berkshire County whose lives are affected by mental health conditions. We envision a future where everyone affected by mental health conditions live healthy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares. Visit or email

The Brien Center's mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive behavioral health services to Berkshire residents through community-based services that promote the highest possible degree of recovery, independence, and quality of life of those served. We will provide access and support to meet the behavioral health needs of individuals of all ages, race, and cultures, and culturally-competent care to promote recovery. Visit
