Christina Wynn: Mass. 2-1-1 is a key resource for residents

By Christina Wynn

PITTSFIELD — Many of us know someone — a friend or a relative — who was directly affected by the trio of monster hurricanes or ferocious wildfires that impacted many areas of our country this past year. Perhaps they were forced to evacuate, leaving behind the home they had built along with all their personal belongings, and were in need of shelter, clothes and basic necessities. Maybe they could stay in their home, but lost power and were unable to draw water from their tap or keep perishable food products on hand to feed their young children.
