You don’t need to spend too much time on the streets of North Adams before you will inevitably see Patrick Hernandez. Patrick, or Pat to his friends (which is just about everyone, it seems), is well known for always having a minute to stop and chat with anyone he runs into. His is one of the most familiar faces at the Berkshire Food Project, where he volunteers hours upon hours of his time to help feed hundreds of people from Monday to Friday. In fact, Pat is recognized as the volunteer with the most hours donated in 2019, coming in at a whopping 784 hours for the entire year. Keep up the great work, Pat!

Do you know someone in the Northern Berkshires that’s gone the extra mile? Recognize their efforts with a Neighborly Award. It’s up to you to shine a light on the good deeds of your family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. Be neighborly; give a Neighborly!
