Refugees in western Massachusetts receive support from Jewish Family Services’ settlement program

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – As the crisis in Ukraine pushes on, one Springfield organization has provided some needed assistance to refugees here in western Massachusetts.

The Jewish Federation of Western Mass has offered aid to local refugees through its Rachel’s Table program.

The mission of Rachel’s Table is to alleviate hunger throughout western Massachusetts. Through this program, a $5,000 donation was recently given to the Jewish Family Service of Western Massachusetts following a $6,000 donation given months earlier. The Jewish Family Service used the latest funds to provide Big Y gift cards to families in need.
