The local Western Mass organization, The United Way of Pioneer Valley, is helping families heat their homes as the cold weather continues to linger in the area.
They raised $60,000 for fuel assistance to help low-income families.
The funds will be distributed through grants from the Warming Hearts Campaign.
The six local agencies that received a grant were Catholic Charities, Springfield Partners for Community Action, The Salvation Army and Council of Churches.
