This is a time of need.

A need to help our most vulnerable residents who are struggling with the issues of food, shelter and basic items resulting from the pandemic.

A need to support social justice and equity for all.

A need to listen and learn from each other with compassion.

A need to treat each other with respect and dignity.

A need to be a part of the change we want to see in our community with acts of understanding, kindness and support.

A need to do our part and to help shape a safer and stronger Berks County.

A need to commit to do more and to do better.

A need to start now.

United: we can do this. We must do this. We will do this.
