COVID-19 Volunteer Response

With the spread of COVID-19 in Berkshire County, we are pulling together our resources to make sure those with the greatest needs can be helped. A Berkshires Mutual Aid and Volunteer Network has formed to meet these needs as best it can. If you are interested and able to volunteer, we ask that you fill out a volunteer form. Once we have your response we will connect you to other people in your town who are organizing resources. We will use the date collected in collaboration with the county-wide operations centers.

We request that you read the COVID-19 Volunteer Guidelines and watch this brief training video.
