Community Response

The American Red Cross Pioneer Valley Chapter has benefited from a recent outpouring of generosity from area individuals and businesses. At top left, the chapter’s executive director, Rick Lee (right), accepts a check for $20,000 from UBS Financial Services in Springfield to support local disaster-relief and recovery efforts. The check, representing a corporate donation, a company matching gift, and employee contributions, is presented by George Keady III, UBS senior vice president and branch manager (left), and James Calabrese, UBS account vice president. Bottom, the staff of Texas Roadhouse in Springfield presents a $13,000 donation to Mary Nathan, the chapter’s director of Disaster Services. The restaurant fed victims of the June 1 tornadoes and helped with cleanup, then coordinated a fund-raiser involving Texas Roadhouse restaurants all over New England to raise the $13,000 donation.
