Thanks to a humble, anonymous donor, the Gándara Center is supplying its Impact Center in Springfield with 20 backpacks full of food, clothing, feminine hygiene products and much more. These are needed by the 16-21-year-old youths the agency serves who are, or at risk of becoming, homeless and may have mental health and/or substance use concerns.

Interested in making a similar donation to the Impact Center or another one of Gándra Center’s programs? Contact Lisa Brecher at or 413-296-6214.
