Peoples United Community Foundation of Eastern Massachusetts (PUCFEM) recently presented a $5,000 check to Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES). The generous donation will help support MVES’ Money Management Program, which assists community dwelling older adults and adults with disabilities within the MVES service area with basic paying management and economic stability.
“We are so grateful for the support of the Peoples United Community Foundation of Eastern Massachusetts,” said Daniel O’Leary, Chief Executive Officer of Mystic Valley Elder Services. “Our agency relies on the generosity of business partners like the Peoples United Bank Foundation of Eastern Massachusetts so we can provide this valuable program to older adults and adults living with disabilities.”
“The Peoples United Bank Foundation of Eastern Massachusetts is delighted to support Mystic Valley Elder Services,” said Matt Hegarty, PUCFEM Board member. “MVES is a cornerstone of the greater Malden community, and their Money Management Program serves in a very effective way to uplift our less advantaged elders and their caregivers.”
The Money Management Program is a practical, economic solution for individuals who need assistance with budgeting, paying routine bills, and keeping track of financial matters. By using trained and insured volunteers, evictions are prevented, utilities are restored, and many local businesses are paid for their services.
