Springfield resident Keno White started an organization called “Keno’s Kids.”
With the help of the community, White was able to collect over 2,500 items for families who were left with nothing after their homes burned down.
The Pioneer Valley Project partnered with “Keno’s Kids” Sunday at South Congregational Church.
Fire victims were able to stop by and take anything they needed.
Clothes, sneakers, toys, blankets and more were up for grabs.
“I just want the community to know that we’re here to support one another, to uplift each other in a time of need”, White told 22News.”We’re here to support and show love and to motivate and inspire others.”
The goal of Sunday’s event was to build a better community and help fire victims get back on track.
