South County is at risk of losing much of our supportive workforce ie seasonal staff, minimal wage earners, restaurant and retail workers because they just cannot afford to live here. This past year nearly 200 of these households turned to Construct for emergency support such as rent supplements, help with utility bills, car repairs, and bus passes. Every dollar from the WALK goes to these vital emergency services. WALK with us to maintain the economic vitality of our community and to keep the families we rely on in their homes and in our neighborhoods.
Barbara Manring, community activist and leader will be our Grand Marshall. The unbelievable Wanda Houston and her band will rock us at the end point celebration while Berkshire Pulse and Richard Downs will kick off the WALK with African drumming, dance and soulful music. A four mile Autumn WALK, terrific food, great entertainment and your generosity will secure the months ahead for many and assure that the South County of the Berkshires remains a community for all.
