Berkshire Bank Popcorn Wagon

Berkshire Bank Foundation

POPCORN POWER OF WORK!

May 2017

The Popcorn Wagon summer season opened May 18 and will be operated by Goodwill's innovative Business 101 - The Popcorn Wagon Project through a most exciting partnership with Berkshire Bank Foundation.

This summer stop by the Historic Popcorn Wagon at 99 North St, Pittsfield, buy a bag of delicious, fresh-popped popcorn and support job training.

Goodwill's Popcorn Wagon Project is a workforce development initiative, training participants about the ins-and-outs of business enterprises - from writing a business plan, overseeing purchasing and inventory, to customer service and satisfaction.

The Popcorn Wagon team keeps the popcorn popping, handles the staffing, finances and stocking, learning skills that will help them get a job, become excellent employees and how to operate a business themselves.

Youth Works  

Your popcorn bag was designed by a Berkshire Works YouthWorks student enrolled in the 2014 summer job training program at the Goodwill.

Every bag you buy, gives back to the community.
