EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. – Heather from East Longmeadow stands in front of Maureen’s Sweet Shoppe, also East Longmeadow, proudly holding her magnificent basket that Maureen Basile, owner, prepared for JGS Lifecare, as a Quarantine Survival Basket.

JGS Lifecare, a healthcare system in Longmeadow, held a food drive to benefit the Parish Cupboard in West Springfield.  All employees who donated were entered into a raffle to win 2 separate BIG Y gift cards and all community members who donated were entered into a raffle to win Maureen’s basket.  “As appreciative as the Parish Cupboard food pantry was to receive our donations, we were as appreciative to those who gave.  We wanted to say thank you while keeping it local,” says Mary-Anne Schelb, Director of Business Development for the healthcare campus.
