John S. Watson Fund Sets 2023 Fundraising Goal
Great Barrington— The 86th annual John S. Watson Fund has set its fundraising goal at $40,000 this year due to the increased need in Southern Berkshire County.
Founded in 1936 by local newsman John S. Watson, the Watson Fund has grown considerably over the years. In 2021, the Watson Fund served a total of 901 people by providing 282 families with food certificates and 411 children with clothing certificates. Both food and clothing certificates are mailed out in early December to accommodate each family’s needs in time for the holidays.
Donations to the Watson Fund can be made in person at any Berkshire Bank branch in South County, by mail to The Watson Fund at P.O. Box 284, Great Barrington, or by using our new secure PayPal link at https://thewatsonfund.org/. Checks should be payable to the Watson Fund.
