The Sheffield Good Samaritan Fund was created to assist our neighbors in the Southern Berkshire Regional School District and to provide a one time hand up during these challenging winter days. The offering at our annual Community Tree Lighting is always received to boost the fund during these cold winter days, but without our in-person gathering, there is a heightened need to send donations directly to Construct Inc, who administers the fund. Please be generous as we assist one another during these challenging days.
Please click on the Good Sam Fund link below for more information and for easy and secure online giving. By mail, make checks payable to Construct, Inc. and send to: 316A State Road Great Barrington MA 01230 (Please mark Good Samaritan Fund in the memo line.)

For more information or assistance, call 413-429-4381 or 413-429-4855

Blessing of the Fields 2018 – After we blessed the fields, the seeds and the soil, we blessed our shared meal.

Our Sheff salad came from the bounty of our Sheffield land.

Fields were blessed. So were farms and farmers, young and old, seeds and soil.
