(PRESS RELEASE) Generous Sponsorship from Upstate Chevrolet Dealers creates a ‘Summer to Remember’ for kids in the Greater Capital Region

Albany, NY – Berkshire Farm Center, a leading nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening
children and families across New York State, is thrilled to announce that the Upstate Chevrolet
Dealers have stepped forward as proud sponsors of our ‘Summer to Remember’ program. Thanks to
their generous support, children in our care will have the opportunity filled with exciting adventures
and memorable activities, enriching their lives during the summer break.

The ‘Summer to Remember’ program is a vital initiative that aims to ensure every child under our care
can experience the normative joys and adventures of childhood. Sadly, many children within our
community face difficult circumstances that can impede them from experiencing the simple joys of
being a child. Through this unique program, we seek to bridge that gap and offer them experiences
that every child deserves, fostering positivity, joy, and lasting memories.

Thanks to the incredible support from the Upstate Chevrolet Dealers, kids in our care will embark on a
series of thrilling adventures throughout the Greater Capital Region. These experiences will include
engaging outings such as apple picking, trips to the movies, visits to the Zoom Flume water park, and
unforgettable days at local amusement parks, among other exciting activities. These experiences go
beyond just fun; they promote socialization, development, and a sense of normalcy that can be
transformative for these young lives.

The partnership between Berkshire Farm Center and the Upstate Chevrolet Dealers is an excellent
example of how community collaboration can create a profound impact on the lives of our children.
The President & CEO of Berkshire Farm Center, Brian Parchesky, expressed heartfelt gratitude for the
generous support from Upstate Chevrolet Dealers, saying:

“We are truly grateful for the remarkable generosity displayed by Upstate Chevrolet Dealers. This
partnership signifies the strength of our community coming together to support the well-being of our
youth. By providing these wonderful experiences for the children in our care, we are nurturing their
development, boosting their self-esteem, and helping them build cherished memories that will last a
lifetime. Together, we are making a real difference in these young lives, and we believe this
collaboration sets a powerful example for the rest of the community.”
