Urgent need at West Springfield Parish Cupboard

Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield calls on the community to help meet the urgent need for nonperishable food items at the West Springfield Parish Cupboard, an emergency food program serving greater West Springfield.

According to director Martha Tighe, demand for assistance was overwhelming in the month of July, as the Parish Cupboard met the needs of 214 families and nearly 600 total individuals, with more than 200 of them children. As a result, the Parish Cupboard’s supply of groceries has fallen to critically low levels.

Donations can be brought to Grace Lutheran Church at 1552 Westfield St., or a pickup can be arranged by contacting the Parish Cupboard directly at (413) 734-7969.
