Proceeds from this sale benefit BRGNS’ food and financial assistance programs. “This is really a community effort. Folks donate their unwanted items to us, and we put our earnings right back into the community,” said Audrey Bridge, Executive Director of BRGNS. “Although the economy has improved, demand for our services continues. There are still people going hungry and needing help with housing and clothing costs; so we keep running the rummage sales,” said Bridge. The monies raised will help cover the cost of utilities, heating fuel, food and rent for qualified individuals and families in Ludlow, Mt. Holly, Belmont, Proctorsville, Cavendish and Plymouth.
Back to School Support
Black River Good
Neighbor Services is initiating a new program to support school children
requesting donations for back to school needs. Audrey Bridge, Executive
Director, said: “Over the years we have noticed that back to school time
places a huge financial burden on our clients with
children. Back to school supply purchases further stress already tight
monthly budgets. When there are several children in a family, equipping
them can seem impossible to families in need.”
Specific back to
school needs vary with grade level and the school attended. Probably
the costliest general requirement is a backpack. Families seeking back
to school support can submit an application to BRGNS at 37B Main Street
starting immediately. Then, when the schools make known the
requirements for each child, families can share those requirements with
the staff at BRGNS. BRGNS assists families in Ludlow, Cavendish, Mount
Holly and Plymouth.
