The Wakefield Municipal Gas & Light Department (WMGLD) is collecting new twin and full-size sheets, pillows, blankets and bedspreads for people in need through a partnership with Mission of Deeds, a Reading-based nonprofit organization that provides furniture and housewares without charge to individuals and families in northeastern Massachusetts. This is the 10th consecutive year that the WMGLD has participated in the program.
The WMGLD will be accepting donations of bed linens and monetary donations at its 480 North Avenue office through early January, according to WMGLD Electric Superintendent and collection coordinator Dan Flynn.
“The WMGLD is grateful to its customers and staff who have always been very generous in making a donation to Mission of Deeds,” Flynn said. “Unfortunately, the need for bedding is greater each year.”
Since its inception in 1993, Mission of Deeds has provided furniture and related items to thousands of area households based on referrals from social workers and clergy. The WMGLD has partnered with Mission of Deeds since 2004 and has been an active supporter of the organization’s Buy-a-Bed program.
