40 Force: Springfield


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The 40 Force headed to Springfield Friday as the city got in the holiday spirit.

The 40 Force is WGGB and our neighbors, working together to make a difference in Western Massachusetts.

We are launching the iniative this holiday season by highlighting the best of cities and town across Western Mass, while helping the neediest members of our region.

Friday night, ABC40’s Brittany Decker helped emcee Spirit of Springfield’s tree lighting event, which featured remarks from Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno, as well as performances by local groups.

There was even an appearance from Mr. and Mrs. Claus and Daffy Duck.

We also asked you to join the 40 Force by helping us support Friends of the Homeless with donations of new underwear, socks, and gloves.

For more information on how you can help Friends of the Homeless – from donations to volunteering – you can visit their website.

Our next 40 Force event will be Monday in Chicopee. Join us from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.

Come down, say hello, be on television, and join us in supporting Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen. Donations of non-perishable food will be accepted on-site.

We look forward to seeing you!
