BCC Students Veterans Alliance Hosts Soldiers for Santa
Dec 6, 2010
The Berkshire Community College (BCC) Students Veterans Alliance (SVA) have organized a community outreach program this holiday season called Soldiers for Santa. The Soldiers for Santa program is working in conjunction with Dreams of Joy, a program that helps families, the elderly and veterans struggling around the holiday season. SVA has volunteered to help Dreams of Joy by collecting items for the veterans in their care. Often, these veterans have no family and, due to their service to our Country, have been left unable to fully care for themselves.

SVA asks the community, both on and off campus, for help in bringing joy to veterans this holiday season. Simply choose an ornament from the stocking on the SVA bulletin board, located in the rear of the SBA Lounge across from the Office of Student Life, and purchase the gift on the ornament you choose. Each ornament clearly states the request for a local veteran in need. Return the gift to the Office of Student Life or Financial Aid no later than Monday, December 13th.

For more information on the Soldiers for Santa program, please contact Beth Wallace at 413-236-1662 or
