Grant of $2K will help as we expand to Albany

Community Caregivers is pleased and honored to announce it has received a $2,000 grant from Berkshire Bank. The award was presented to help the organization fulfill several key aspects of its mission, specifically providing services to low- and moderate-income individuals and educating caregivers.

The grant is particularly helpful as Community Caregivers expands into the city of Albany. 

The organization’s neighbors-helping-neighbors service model initially served the community of Altamont. Over the years, its service area grew to include Berne, Bethlehem, Guilderland, Knox and New Scotland. Following a grant from thestate’s Department of Health in 2012, Community Caregivers began providing services in several neighborhoods in the city of Albany.

“We are very pleased to have a new community partner, and I thank Berkshire Bank for their generosity. The funds will be put to very good use,” said Tom Tipple, Executive Director of Community Caregivers.

Berkshire Bank is also expanding its presence in the Albany area. Based in Pittsfield, Mass., Berkshire Bank now has more than 20 branches in the Capital District.
