‘Just Love’ donations needed to help the homeless

Hampden County

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Drop-off sites have been in operation for the “Just Love” event, which has been collecting bags and purses filled with supplies for the less fortunate local residents.

Ana Jewell, the coordinator of the event, has called on people to accompany their donated items with a note to those in need. She suggested what words would be a good fit for those donating to this great cause.

“What would they want to hear if they were homeless,” said Ana Jewell, event coordinator. “What do you want to hear if you have a need? People need words of encouragement. There’s a lot of bad stuff already, but just a little ray of hope.”

Jewell and her committee will distribute donations to those in need on February 29, in honor of the leap year.

Drop-off donations for ‘Just Love’ are at the following locations:

  • Iona Cafe 37 Oak Street Indian Orchard, MA
  • Pine Point Branch Library 204 Boston Road, Springfield, MA
  • A Rise For Social Justice 38 School Street, Springfield, MA
