The Community Survival Center is a 37 year old non-profit agency that helps families struggling to provide the basics: food, clothing and household items. Our emergency food pantry serves Ludlow, Wilbraham, and Hampden as well as the 16 Acres, Pine Point, and Indian Orchard neighborhoods in Springfield.
The Thrift Shop is open to the public and sells quality clothing and accessories, most at just $4 per item. Shirts and blouses are $3 per item. Also, our Fill A Bag Program offers sales at just $7/bag (with a limit of one bag of children’s clothing), and is also open to the general public. 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.
