Sad Passing of Retired REALTOR Mel Greenberg

It is with a heavy heart we share the sad news that retired Realtor Mel Greenberg passed away last night.  He and his wife Ellen were members here for many years.  For those that knew Mel, you are invited to a memorial service in his honor on Tuesday, July 2nd at 2:30pm at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire.  Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

In fact, Mel was one of our first Good Neighbor Award recipients in Berkshire County and Massachusetts, for all of the work he did starting Berkshire’s Bounty, that supplied Breaking Bread and the People’s Pantry.  Here was an article we wrote about Mel’s good work for that project many years ago. Mel is a Shining Example of Community Caring   A quote from 20005 that summed up his work…

“Several years ago, Mel Greenberg told me about his goal of establishing Berkshire’s Bounty and the People’s Pantry. He asked if I would be interested in working with him to collect the food from local markets. Mel got together a group of volunteers to make the rounds of the markets every Thursday morning collecting many boxes of fruits and vegetables as well as milk and bread.  He has organized the project, gotten replacements when necessary and driven his truck to Big Y, the Co-op market, Guido’s Great Barrington Bagel and the Corn Crib.  Energetic, cheerful and determined, he has been the heart and soul of this project since it’s inception. Mel and his crew have moved literally tons of food, providing for the needs of many, many people… Mel is a real mensch.” – Marion Adler.
