Looking to volunteer in Westfield to help the tornado victims? Here's what

June 8, 2011

Now that a few days have passed, the people of western Massachusetts have had a chance to survey the damage and come up with a plan to rebuild. I was asked by my friends at the 104th Fighter Wing in Westfield, to post this volunteer information. When the tornados hit, we got tons of calls here at WAAF, from people looking to help. But, these small towns didn't have the means to organize a huge volunteer effort on NO NOTICE. But, they are now asking for help. If you feel compelled to do something, and you don't have the extra money to donate to the relief effort... Maybe this is a better alternative. A list of requests and contact information is below! Thank you for being so generous with your time, money, and resources! You guys are the best!Â
