Hilltown Families


Taking place across western Massachusetts, community meals held around Thanksgiving offer opportunities for communities to connect through food and for families to give back to their communities. Families can donate food, volunteer at events, or attend community meals in order to help build community!

How do you teach empathy to teens? This winter, students of the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter School of South Hadley, MA, took part in a three week interim course called “Pay It Forward” where teens were inspired to recognize community problems and collaborate to make a difference. The future is bright!
