Northern Berkshire Community Coalition will discuss "Organizational Collaboration" at its monthly forum from 10 a.m. to noon Friday, Feb. 14, at First Baptist Church; use the Eagle Street entrance.

The forum will look at the barriers local organizations face when working together and how "business collaborations" might be developed to encourage efficiencies and cost savings.

The organizers of the Friendship Center food pantry ask forum attendees to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the pantry.
