During the week of Dec. 16 to 20, the North Adams Public Schools, City Hall, Police Department, Fire Department and Public Library will conduct a food drive to benefit the Northern Berkshire Interfaith Action Initiative’s Friendship Center Food Pantry, the city’s local food pantry.

In addition to non-perishable food, personal items such as soap, shampoo, and toothpaste are also being collected.

Collection boxes will be picked up by City Yard workers at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 20, and delivered to the food pantry at 43 Eagle St.
