RCB Makes Charitable Donation to Mystic Valley Elders
Reading, MA – Reading Cooperative Bank recently made a major donation to Mystic Valley Elder Services in support of its Elder Independence Fund. This gift supports a unique local program that provides emergency assistance to cover bare necessities for elders when no other help can be found.
The RCB Charitable Foundation leadership recognized that this winter’s epic storms were exceedingly hard on the fixed income elder community as ice and snow removal and heating costs soared.
“Mystic Valley Elder Services is deeply committed to ensuring that all community members get what they need to live comfortably and safely in their homes. Here at RCB, we share their values and desire to support those in need. We are grateful for the work they do in our communities” says Julieann Thurlow, President and CEO of Reading Cooperative Bank.
Mystic Valley Elder Services is a non-profit agency aimed at assisting older adults, adults living with disabilities, and their caregivers. Since 1975, they have devotedly served community members from Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Stoneham, and Wakefield. Their mission is to keep elders independent and in their homes and communities for as long as they choose. To that end, Mystic Valley coordinates home care, Meals on Wheels, and enrichment programming that maintains independence and improves quality of life.
