MVES’ Emergency Closet Receives Hundreds of Donations

More than 75 members of The Thursday Fortnightly Club donated hundreds of needed items to Mystic Valley Elder Services’ (MVES) Emergency Closet and brought the items to the Brookline Bank in Medford Square. The donations were overwhelming and due to the generosity of The Thursday Fortnightly Club members, Mystic Valley Elder Services will be able to stock their Emergency Closet with the necessary items.

The Mystic Valley Elder Services’ Emergency Closet provides its care managers who work with low-income older adults and adults living with disabilities a place to access new towels, new sheets, new blankets, toiletries, and large print puzzle books for their consumers who need them. Having these items in the agency immediately available can make a huge difference in someone’s life and they depend solely on donations.

The Thursday Fortnightly Club has been supportive of the mission and making contributions to MVES for decades.
