Western Massachusetts organizations seek ways to help Ukrainians and other refugees in time of need

SPRINGFIELD — Jodi Falk says her agency, and the human resource network in general, is there to fill the gaps.

“When we hear these stories about refugees, we do all we can do,” said Falk, executive director of Rachel’s Table, a program of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts. “Through our networks, partnerships, and more, we seek to support people in times of need, and we distribute food every day for so many.”
