Some Western Massachusetts residents got into the holiday spirit this weekend, collecting food for a worthy cause.
Baystate Rug and Flooring set up outside of the Stop and Shop on Memorial Drive, holding a food drive to benefit Lorraine's Soup Kitchen and Pantry.
Organizers said it is a crucial time for food donations, as federal cuts have impacted needy families.
Last year, Lorraine's distributed 400,000 pounds of food to nearly 9,000 Chicopee residents.
