UTICA, N.Y. – Berkshire Bank donated $1,500 to the YWCA Mohawk Valley to support residential programs and services.
The funds will go toward two emergency domestic violence shelters, and programs that help find housing for victims and provide intensive case management.
“Our shelters and residential programs save lives every day,” says YWCA MV CEO Dianne Stancato. “The support of Berkshire will go far in helping us to support survivors of domestic violence and help them create safe and independent lives.”
