CHICOPEE Mass. (WWLP) – It’s a Western Massachusetts tradition; holiday food baskets for needy veterans and their families.
Members of the Pioneer Valley USO received food donations Saturday at several locations in Springfield and Chicopee. The food will go into the holiday food baskets in time for Thanksgiving.
Bob Anderson of Chicopee was all too happy to give. Anderson said, “We give them a great deal when they come back, especially those who are injured we can’t do enough for them.”
The USO food drive began Monday at Greenfield Community College and has continued each day since.
