Coming up this Sunday there will be a Berkshire Nursing Families reunion and raise a locally brewed Big Elm Beer event for Berkshire Nursing Families! Proceeds to benefit Berkshire Nursing Families.

Berkshire Nursing Families provides education, lactation consultation, a seven-day-a-week breastfeeding hotline and home visits, all of which are free of charge, to every family who needs them.

Because breastfeeding impacts so many aspects of family wellness- from reducing health concerns like diabetes and asthma to improving mother-child bonding- the organization makes a powerful contribution to the well-being of our community’s families.

This is a family friendly event. There will be snacks for all, activities for kids, and plenty of beer to sample!

The event is this Sunday, June 3rd at Big Elm Brewing from 1:00 P.M.-3:00 P.M. in Sheffield.
