GREAT BARRINGTON -- The Watson Fund's Secret Santa has arrived again! The anonymous donor has sent a very generous gift of $15,000 to the fund accompanied by their annual wish for "Peace on Earth, Good Will towards Men."

The donation will enable the Watson Christmas Fund to meet its goal and once again be able to provide food and clothing certificates to over 900 people, including 275 families and 428 children in the Southern Berkshire area.

With the latest donations totaling $15,330, the fund is only $52 away from its goal of $25,000.

Donations can still be made at any South County Berkshire Bank branch through January 2014. Checks should be made payable to the Watson Fund.
