Bowling For Berkshire Baby Box In Great Barrington
Lisa Green reports from Great Barrington. Back in the day, there was a TV show called Bowling For Dollars, but on Monday, August 22, a group of people gathered at the Cove Bowling Alley to bowl for Berkshire Baby Box. A new nonprofit engineered by South Egremont resident Hinda Bodinger, the organization provides expectant moms in the Berkshires with a baby shower in a box and a safe sleeping space for their newborns. Berkshire Baby Box is also partnering with local agencies to distribute the filled boxes during monthly parenting workshops in Berkshire County. At the event, teams of bowlers took time out between their turns to place their raffle tickets into a plethora of donated items, services and silent auction offerings. “I love this project and am moved beyond words by the community support and how many services there are out there for those in need,” said Bodinger, president of Berkshire Baby Box.
