Our friends at Robinson Donovan, a full service law firm in Springfield, are celebrating their 150th anniversary this year. In honor of this milestone, they made a $1,000 donation to Community Legal Aid in support of our work providing free legal services to low-income and elderly residents of central and western Massachusetts. CLA is one of twelve area non-profits to receive a donation.

In collaboration with the Worcester County Food Bank, Community Legal Aid has started the Food Security Outreach Project. This project headed by Attorney Gina Plata-Nino was started to help more eligible families keep their SNAP benefits thus ensuring more families don’t go hungry. Over the past year, many families have lost their SNAP benefits through no fault of their own.
