The Village Bank collects ‘Warm Winter Wishes’ in Wayland for homeless Family Promise families

The Village Bank in Wayland will sponsor its second annual Warm Winter Wishes gift drive to benefit local homeless families served by Family Promise Metrowest. The Bank invites customers, friends, and neighbors to stop by with a donation of new winter hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, or warm socks for adults and children from November 14 through December 16.

Based in Natick, Family Promise Metrowest is a cooperative, interfaith response to family homelessness. Host congregations, including several in Wayland, and local volunteers furnish families in the program with safe, temporary shelter and meals on a rotating basis while professional staff members assist them in reaching goals that end the cycle of homelessness.

“The families supported by Family Promise Metrowest are determined to achieve their independence,” said Joseph De Vito, president and CEO of The Village Bank. “We hope that the community will join us in extending Warm Winter Wishes to help them on that journey.”
