The Eagle Santa Fund is under way and its goal is to raise $45,000 to make the holiday season brighter for local children. The Santa Fund has raised more than $17,000 to date.
Funds buy toy animals, like teddy bears, for children under 2, while for children 3 to 11, a $40 gift certificate goes to their parent or guardian, who can then go out and buy a holiday gift.
Contributions can be listed in the donor's name, in memory of loved ones or anonymously. Donors and their contributions will be listed in the paper unless otherwise noted. Donations are tax-deductible.
Donations can be mailed to The Eagle Santa Fund, P.O. Box 1171, Pittsfield, MA 01202, or dropped off at The Berkshire Eagle office at 75 S. Church St. in Pittsfield.
