Thank you to all of our vineyard friends who gave so generously to Mystic Area Shelter & Hospitality, Inc. (MASH) as we gathered to celebrate the season! For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the program, MASH shelters families who have become homeless and rehouses those families as quickly as possible by providing assistance with housing location, security deposit, first month’s rent and case management services until the family is stabilized. Visit the MASH website to get more information about this great cause.

Below, a letter from Denise Collins of MASH in thanks and recognition to those who donated.

Dear Merrily,

I wanted to reach out and let you know how grateful we are at MASH for the wonderful donations from your guests. I will of course be sending you a formal letter of thanks but I wanted to let you know how excited we were to receive everything. You may know that most of the donations were new and will be given to client families as unexpected holiday gifts. We provide services and rehouse many families who have so little that these practical gifts will help set them up in their new home.

I hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday.

Best regards,
