Campaign Aims to Help North Berkshire Families, Restaurants
Going into the Thanksgiving holiday, the owners of the Freight Yard Pub knew that some people would struggle with doing an at-home celebration during the pandemic, so they put together a low-priced turkey meal to go.
Coming out of the holiday, they saw just how many people are truly struggling.
Enter the "Win-Win" fund-raiser that raises funds through a Gofundme campaign that will be turned into vouchers for $50 that can be redeemed at participating restaurants for a meal to feed a family of four. Donors' contributions therefore benefit both the families, who receive meals, and the restaurants, who get the money to help carry them through the difficult economic times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"It's truly amazing what people will do for their neighbors when they're in need," Colleen Taylor said. "We've witnessed this over and over again in our area. It is a smaller community, and we know our neighbors. I think people are going to come through again."
