TO PREVIOUS AD
We want you to know that The Berkshire Edge has launched a membership campaign intended to support the community while also moving The Edge to a next level of development. There are three levels of membership. At level 1, to encourage you to shop locally, you will be entered to win gift certificates from local businesses. At levels 2 and 3, part of your membership will go for free advertising for the Berkshire nonprofit of your choice. This represents an extension of what The Edge has been doing all along...trying to use this locally owned, regional publication to support both the business and the nonprofit communities in the Berkshires.
Can you help to spread the word? Nonprofits should start mobilizing their boards. Members can support The Edge and their favorite nonprofit at the same time.
Valid Monday thru Thursday for the month of January
Offer can not be combined with any other discounts, coupons, packages or already purchased gift certificates.
We are set for 2018...
