Valentine’s day donation: Couple’s change in plans inspires loving action

A local couple whose wedding plans were drastically changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic decided to use their deposit to The Log Cabin in Holyoke to do a good deed. The couple, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted Rachel’s Table, a program of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts, to choose a recipient agency, help with food donation option, and organize the delivery. The result? On February 11, Friends of the Homeless on Worthington Street in Springfield received 150 meals including chicken, turkey, salad, sides, rolls and dessert.

Rachel’s Table called this the Valentine’s Day donation, as it was a few days prior to the holiday. The love of this wonderful local couple inspired this loving and generous gift to those who are hungry. Clearly, this couple’s future is bright as they lead with love and set an example to all to prioritize service to others.

Rachel’s Table is proud to be the answer to the question “what can I do?” Join us in donating time, resources, or your ideas to support food security in Western Massachusetts. Find out more here.
