Fundraiser held in West Springfield for local veterans

Hampden County

Massachusetts veterans in need will benefit from a fundraiser at Table and Vine in West Springfield.

The Yuengling Brewery’s “Lagers for Heroes” program raised nearly nearly $8,000 for the Massachusetts VFW foundation.

Ludlow resident, Eric Secundo is the state commander of the VFW, he told 22News, “100 percent of all the monies raised goes right back into veterans assistance. Whether it’s food, shelter, back rent, anytime a veteran is in need.”

Secundo said there are 2,000 western Massachusetts members of the veterans of foreign wars and there are 22,000 in the statewide VFW membership.
