Emergency Relief Fund Established to Aid Victims Displaced from General Washington Apartments

Partnership between Reading Cooperative Bank and Town of Reading to collect and distribute funds to residents of 39 units at 625 Main Street

Reading, MA — The Town of Reading has partnered with Reading Cooperative Bank to create an emergency fund to aid the victims displaced last week at the General Washington Apartments at 625 Main Street in Reading. Through its Charitable Foundation, the bank will collect tax-deductible donations on behalf of the Town to distribute to the residents of the 39 units that have been forced out of their homes until repairs can be done.

If residents or friends would like to make a tax-deductible donation of any amount, there are three ways to do so:

  1. By cash or check at any branch of Reading Cooperative Bank. Checks payable to: Residents of 625 Main Street.
  2. By transfer from your RCB account. Just log-in and follow the instructions on the RCB webpage.
  3. By credit or debit card via PayPal at readingcoop.com/charitable. These donations will incur a PayPal charitable rate fee of 2.2% + $0.30.
