“In our forty-first year of service, we at A Place To Turn remain committed to the mission of our founders: to help make our neighbors’ lives better,” said Joanne Barry, executive director of A Place To Turn. “Because of donors like Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation, we are able to continue to provide emergency food, diapers and personal care items to those in need while maintaining virus prevention practices of mask wearing, social distancing, and sanitizing, and have moved our distribution into the fresh air of the outdoors. The support that Middlesex provides for our community is appreciated.”
To date, the Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation has distributed $760,000 from the relief fund to 73 non-profits in the community.
