Community Foundation of Western Mass.

      A fund set up just a few weeks ago to help nonprofits in Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties in western Massachusetts has grown to $3 million.

     The COVID-19 Response Fund for the Pioneer Valley announced a second round of emergency grants this week bringing the total amount awarded to $1 million.

     WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Katie Allan Zobel, president and CEO of the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
