Springfield, MA (
Originally known as the Springfield Community Chest, United Way of Pioneer Valley took on its current name in 1972, while maintaining the same scope of work. We now serve all of Hampden County, Granby, and South Hadley with the exact same goal as our flyers from 1921: relieving and preventing the distress caused by financial hardship.
“All of us at the United Way of Pioneer Valley are excited about the opportunity to honor our past as we shape our future, with our new community investment programs. We ask everyone to be on the look-out for events and activities honoring our hundredth anniversary in the weeks and months ahead”, said Paul Mina, President and CEO of United Way of Pioneer Valley.
