Our Church Outreach Team has been contributing to both summer and winter youth employment programs through the Berkshire Regional Employment Board for three years. We do so as means to fight the ravages of poverty, hunger and unemployment. We do so to give disadvantaged youth a chance in life by offering a job. We believe that there are two important ways to fight hunger and homelessness, two of our critical mission areas: direct assistance as in the Food Pantry and Food Project, and secondly, by giving them a chance to earn a living so they won’t need the food assistance. The .pdf document below is an article describing the program and acknowledging our assistance. We hope you will read it. A copy will also be posted on the bulletin board outside the church office.
