The Reading Cooperative Bank recently awarded Mystic Valley Elder Services $5,000 toward its Elder Independence Fund, a significant resource that offers grants to low-income elders or adults living with disabilities to pay for an urgently needed item or service that helps the individual remain independent.
“We are very grateful to the Reading Cooperative Bank and its generous donation to our Elder Independence Fund,” said Daniel O’Leary, Chief Executive Officer of Mystic Valley Elder Services. “This donation will be a tremendous help in maintaining the Fund and helping those older adults in need.”
The Elder Independence Fund is used as a last resort to provide community services, purchase essential home care services, and address situations of need for which there is no other government program or charitable resource. In order to maintain this vital resource and insure its continued existence, and its ability to respond to the needs of local older adults and adults living with disabilities, Mystic Valley Elder Services seeks support from funders such as the Reading Cooperative Bank.
