The Community Survival Center is a 40 year old non-profit agency that helps people struggling to provide food for their families. Our emergency food pantry serves Ludlow, Wilbraham, and Hampden as well as the 16 Acres, and Indian Orchard neighborhoods in Springfield. Eligible Seniors, 60 and older, may live anywhere in Hampden County.
The Thrift Shop on Main is open to the public and sells quality clothing and accessories, most at just $4 per item. Shirts and blouses are $3 per item. All proceeds help to fund our pantry.
We are supported by donations from our neighbors: individuals, churches, businesses, schools and various groups and organizations within the above mentioned communities. And we are extremely grateful to be able to support the center primarily with their help.
