40 Force: Chicopee


CHICOPEE, Mass. (WGGB) — The 40 Force continued Monday as the team headed to Chicopee.

What is 40 Force? Simply put, the 40 Force is WGGB and our neighbors, working together to make a difference in Western Massachusetts.

It’s our commitment to support the community by pooling our resources with the collective knowledge and know-how of the Pioneer Valley.

We are launching 40 Force this holiday season by highlighting the best of cities and town across Western Mass, while helping the neediest members of our region.

Monday night, we shined the spotlight on Chicopee. We took a look at the revitalization of the downtown and Market Square areas.

ABC40’s Ed Carroll also checked out two city staples – Paul Bunyan Tree Farm on Fuller Road and the Munich Haus, right in Downtown Chicopee.

A big thank you to those of you that came down as we helped support Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen with donations of non-perishable food items.

Join us Tuesday night as we head to Westfield. We will be broadcasting from the Boys and Girls Club (28 West Silver Street) from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.

Come on down, say hello, be on television, and join the 40 Force as we support the club. Donations of non-perishable food items, as well as monetary donations, will be accepted on-site.

We look forward to seeing you!
