Helping Hands for Tornado Victims
Several local organizations have held food drives to benefit the victims of the devastating tornado in Western Massachusetts. Another is this weekend.
The devastating tornado June 1 in Western Massachusetts, one of the strongest to hit the state, left damage in several communities, including Springfield, Brimfield and Monson. Last week, the Knox Trail Boy Scouts held a food drive. This week, a Girl Scout troop is hosting one.
An organizer posted the following notice on the Milford Patch Facebook page:

Drop off times are Saturday, June 11 from 3 to 6 p.m., and Sunday, June 12 from 1 to 3 p.m., at 4 Congress St.
