(NOTE: Reading Cooperative Bank has two locations in Wilmington — 230 Lowell Street and 352 Middlesex Avenue.)

READING, MA — Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB) 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.

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 to ensure its continued existence and 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 RCB.

Taking part in the award presentation were (from left to right) Reading resident and Mystic Valley Elder Services Board Member Brian Snell; Reading resident and Mystic Valley Elder Services Director of Development Jenny Vanasse; Reading resident and Mystic Valley Elder Services Board Member Bill Hecht, Sr.; and RCB President & CEO Julie Thurlow.
