Pittsfield Hurricane Relief distributes more funds

Pittsfieldhurricanerelief.org distributed another round of checks today in the amount of $1,000 to each of the families in Pittsfield that lost their homes and much of their possessions. Each of these families has now received a total of $12,000 from this fund.

The Pittsfield Hurricane Relieif fun will continue to receive donations as long as they trickle in and will see to it that the money continues to aid the victim families. The fund's bank account was compromised electronically, but TD Bank immediately assisted in preventing any losses whatsoever. That account has been closed and the bank is assisting us in processing any additional funding that may be forthcoming.

"I just want to thank everyone who had a hand in helping our friends and neighbors in any way - one more time. We cannot express our gratitude sufficiently," said Pastor Howard Gunter, Pittsfield Federated Church.
