Local business collects food for Lorraine's Soup Kitchen

CHICOPEE, MA (WSHM) -

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.
