More than 75 members of The Thursday Fortnightly Club along with Brookline Bank donated hundreds of needed items to Mystic Valley Elder Services’ Emergency Closet. The items were recently dropped off at MVES the donations were overwhelming. Due to the generosity of The Thursday Fortnightly Club members, MVES will be able to stock their Emergency Closet with the necessary items.

The MVES Emergency Closet provides a place for low-income older adults and adults living with disabilities with a place to access new towels, new sheets, new blankets and toiletry items for people 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.
