DEERFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Wednesday night, the 40 Force made it’s first trip to Franklin County.
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.
Over the last several weeks, we have been to communities across the area – from Southwick, to Chicopee, Springfield, to South Hadley.
Wednesday, we shined the spotlight in Deerfield.
Brittany visited the Deerfield Inn and checked on their recovery following the floods. She also took another step in time when she took a look at Historic Deerfield.
We also checked out the wide array of sights and smells of the Yankee Candle flagship store.
Thank you to everyone who came down to help us support the Franklin County TRIAD program, with donations of money, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, batteries, and flashlights.
Thursday night, we head to Longmeadow. We will be broadcasting from the Storrs Library (693 Longmeadow 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 Valley Gives. Monetary donations will be accepted on-site.
We look forward to seeing you!
