We often discuss the overwhelming generosity and greatness of our listeners, which is never enough. Once again, you have come through for the community.

Early Monday morning, a few members of the local Toys For Tots organization came by our studios in West Pittsfield and got put to work. That's because of the incredible amount of donations our listeners provided for needy children in the area.

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. There have been many boxes placed around local businesses in the area, but when I saw the gentlemen come into our station to grab our box, it was filled all the way to the top. Overflowing, even.

Thank you very much for your generosity and giving nature this holiday season. There is no place like The Berkshires when it comes to helping out the community.
