Miniature Trees Benefit
PITTSFIELD -- Twenty miniature and tabletop Christmas trees will go on display this week in a front window of Steven Valenti’s men’s clothing store at 157 North Street. Proceeds from the gaily-decorated trees will provide food for less fortunate Pittsfield neighbors this holiday season. Silent auction bids on the trees may be placed at Steven Valenti’s store until Nov 9.
The proceeds from 15 miniature and tabletop trees in 2011 raised $1000 for Food Pantry and community meal at South Congregational Church.
This year the need is even greater. Over 300 needy Pittsfield families are given bags of food and other staples at the Food Pantry each week. South Church’s Pantry is supplied with food from the Western Mass Food Bank, grocery stores, local organizations, and other churches. Volunteers from the church and community assist with distribution on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Another 80 to 100 individuals come for the "St. Joe’s Kitchen" community meal served at South Church every Wednesday evening.
Silent Auction bidding on the trees will conclude at 2 p.m., on Nov. 10, at South Church. Bidders do not need to be present to win. Proceeds will be used to feed the needy in our community.
South Church is located at 110 South Street. The church is handicapped accessible at the rear parking lot entrance. Admission to the Harvest Church Fair is free.
