Charity Begins at Home for Construct Inc.
As affluent as the Berkshires are, there are many people who struggle financially in the rural culture capital, and Construct Inc. provides comprehensive housing, support and educational services to anyone in the Southern Berkshire region who has lost his or her home or lacks the financial resources to maintain safe, decent and affordable housing. On Monday night at Eisner Camp in Great Barrington, some two-dozen restaurants, wine shops and food retailers set up stations in the camp’s mammoth dining hall, offering up a donated feast so that the event’s net of $68,000 would truly help those in need. Ravjeet and Maniraj Chahal (left) helped their family, who owns Aroma Bar & Grill in Great Barrington, by charming partygoers and handing out take-out menus.
