LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Nearly a dozen Longmeadow and East Longmeadow stores and restaurants have raised more than $2,600 to benefit the American Red Cross hurricane relief.
Many of those participating stores are in the Longmeadow shops.
They held a four-day Facebook auction.
Jennifer Bates, who manages ‘In Chic Shoenique’, said she didn’t expect the auction to be such a huge success.
She told 22News, “I think it’s wonderful. I was very surprised by – it’s utterly surprising. It was that much.”
The auction was coordinated by Dr. Glen Brooks of Longmeadow.
The need for hurricane relief funding remains critical.
