With just 2 days before Thanksgiving the Medeiros and Pol Families received the keys to their new homes on Rock Street Lowell. A crowd of 50 volunteers, city officials, corporate sponsors and friends watched as both families became homeowners.
In just under a year, 1089 volunteers, worked 10,758 hours to turn a vacant lot into two safe, decent, energy efficient, affordable homes. All this could not happen without the dedication and support of the community. Thank you for all our supporters and volunteers.
Spring will be here soon and construction on 2 more homes on Willie Street, Lowell will begin.

Berkshire Bank & Habitat have Teamed Up!
Berkshire Bank, America’s Most Exciting Bank®, has teamed up with NESN, New England’s most watched sports network and is donating $200 for each successful Boston Bruins penalty kill during NESN televised games. In addition to the financial support, Berkshire Bank employees will help with Habitat for Humanity home builds in communities across New England where Berkshire Bank has a presence through the company’s nationally renowned Employee Volunteer Program. At the conclusion of the season, the total funds collected through Hockey 4 Housing will be distributed evenly among the eleven participating New England Habitat for Humanity chapters.
Berkshire Bank Foundation and NESN have set a goal of raising $50,000 for the season. We are excited to share with you that to date we have raised $31,200!
