NORTH ADAMS -- Donations are arriving for the Northern Berkshire Santa Fund, and the early tally has already topped $2,700.
All funds will be used to buy toys for needy children in the area. As always, all donations will be gratefully accepted, and none are too small or large. All are tax-deductible. The distribution dates for toys will be announced to the selected families.
The nonprofit Santa Fund is in its 54th year and is run entirely by volunteers. As has been the tradition, the Transcript will print a list of all donations as they arrive, as well as your brief holiday greetings or memorial messages.
Please send your donations to: Northern Berkshire Santa Fund, c/o the North Adams Transcript, 85 Main St., Suite 2, North Adams MA 01247, or drop them off in the large gift-wrapped box at the front counter of the Transcript and Advocate office.
