Masons give back to children
Thursday, December 30, 2004

The Mystic Valley Masonic Lodge Angel Fund in Arlington recently received special grants totaling more than $600 from the Masons in Massachusetts' Masonic Angel Foundation.
     Mystic Valley is using this funding to provide several local children with much-needed winter clothing, in addition to providing Christmas gifts and other necessary items for a local family to enjoy the holiday. This grant was made possible through the Masonic Angel Foundation's fourth annual campaign to provide holiday gift and benevolence packages to children in communities served by the organization.
     "I am proud that we are able to assist our local Masonic Angel Funds by giving their friends and neighbors the opportunity to enjoy the holiday season," said MAF Co-Founder Robert Fellows. "As Masons, we love working with kids and value each opportunity to help one in need. Through the contribution of our local Lodges and support of the national Masonic Angel Foundation, we are able to make a difference for hundreds of Massachusetts children this winter."
     The Masonic Angel Foundation is a nationwide initiative supported by the Masons in Massachusetts, which provides modest assistance, including eyeglasses, tuition, clothing, medical fees and sports and musical equipment to schoolchildren in need. Since its inception, 100 percent of the money raised stays in the community to benefit the kids.
     The Masonic Angel Fund is only one of a number of community initiatives that the Masons are involved with, including programs focusing on education, blood donation, child identification and individual charity and support to those in need. The Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts is comprised of approximately 45,000 members of 270 lodges in nearly 200 communities across the commonwealth
