Community Support

The American Red Cross Pioneer Valley Chapter Disaster Action Team was dispatched to the Mass Turnpike’s westbound Blandford Service Area recently following an early-morning sulfuric acid spill. Volunteers provided overnight food and drink to 100 emergency responders working to clean up the hazardous materials, and subsequent teams were dispatched during the day. Here, Red Cross volunteer Vicki Edwards serves lunch to an emergency worker.

Moments of Peace

Hadley Garden Center owners Janine and Tom Giles stand near a tree they donated to Cooley Dickinson Hospital’s recently opened Healing Garden. Located in the space between the former Locust Street entrance and the North Building, the garden offers a sanctuary for mobile patients, visitors, and staff who seek quiet time and a chance to connect with nature and self. Patients unable to enjoy the outdoor garden will have access to garden views from several treatment areas, hospital corridors, and patient rooms.
