Pittsfield Hurricane Relief Fund continues to support local victims

PITTSFIELD - The Pittsfield Federated Church Hurricane Relief Fund has collected over $90,000 and administered over $70,000, as of Dec. 16.

The current fund balance is around $20,000. The administrators desire to get it up to a point where they can administer another $5,000 to each of the victims who lost homes. "We are just a little over $15,000 short of that intermittent goal," said Howard Gunter, Pastor Pittsfield Federated Church.

Pittsfield Hurricane Relief Fund is under serious consideration for a $5,000 grant from the Vermont Community Foundation, which would significantly aid the fund ability to continue to be a very positive and viable resource for local victims.

100% of all donations to the Pittsfield Hurricane Relief Fund have gone directly to victims and required banking/PayPal fees. No monies have been used for supplies, postage, administration or any other materials or services whatsoever.
