Mason's Help

 

     In an effort to assist the critical and urgent needs of children and families of actively-deployed military, the Masons of Massachusetts through their Masonic Angel Fund and the USO have teamed up to provide back-to-school clothing and supplies to kids in Weymouth among a dozen other Massachusetts communities.

 

     Children and their families are receiving gift certificates to various grocery, shoe, clothing, and department stores which can be redeemed for much-needed supplies and apparel.

 

      In addition, the Masons and the USO are working with the retailers participating in this program to arrange discounts, free items, and other perks.

 

     "We are very thankful that the Masons have once again stepped forward to help our children," said Alice Harkins, executive director of the USO New England. "Back to school time can be very trying, both financially and emotionally, for these critical need families which are very thankful for the support provided by the Masons and other corporate citizens."
