PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Hospice of Western and Central Massachusetts announced that the entrances to their office building will be illuminated green for the month of November 2021 as part of the national 'Green Light A Vet' initiative. 
 
A kick of ceremony will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021 from 4:30pm – 5:30pm with an outdoor presentation at 55 Church Street.
 
The Green Light a Vet mission is to show support for veterans. It also raises awareness about the challenges faced by many veterans and the resources that are available at the county, state, and federal level to assist veterans and their families.
 
"Illuminating our building with green lights is just one way we can all show gratitude for the sacrifices and contributions of our veterans and their families," said Arlene Santiago, Clinical Director for Hospice of Western and Central Massachusetts. "The Green Light will hopefully aide in showing our veterans that they are seen, appreciated, and supported. We want to encourage everyone to join with us in displaying a green light for our veterans."
 
Hospice of Western and Central Massachusetts is encouraging residents of Berkshire County to participate by changing any light bulb to a green bulb. While this event is focused around the week of Veterans Day, participants are encouraged to continue shining the light year-round.
