READING, MA — It’s that time of year again! With colder months approaching, now is the time to think of those who may need help keeping warm this winter. Reading Cooperative Bank is holding its annual blanket drive, now through November 30th, to support Mission of Deeds of Reading.
Mission of Deeds is looking for new or gently used blankets for twin, full, and queen-sized beds, with the highest need for twin-sized blankets. Blankets may be dropped off at any RCB branch. RCB’s goal is to collect 200 blankets, and to get things started, the Reading Cooperative Charitable Foundation has donated the first 50 blankets.
“Winter in New England is tough for everyone, especially if you can’t keep warm. This drive provides the perfect opportunity to have a tangible impact in our communities,” said Stephanie Johnson and Edenia Giang, Mortgage Loan Officers & Co-chairs of the 2018 Blanket Drive.
Mission of Deeds is an approved 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing families in Middlesex and Essex counties with necessary household items free of charge. For more information, visit the Mission of Deeds website.
