Bank donates to buy-a-bed effort


Reading Co-operative Bank recently donated $1,084 to Mission of Deeds in Reading to support the volunteer organization’s 2013 buy-a-bed campaign. The money was raised in part from bank customers who donated spare change to the cause; however, the bulk of the donation, $1,000, came from the bank’s foundation, the Reading Co-operative Charitable Foundation. Founded in 1993, Mission of Deeds strives to provide necessities such as beds, tables, and chairs to homeless and needy families. The nonprofit group’s annual buy-a-bed campaign raises money to buy new mattresses. For more information about Mission of Deeds, visit or call 781-944-9797.
