The 200 Club made a significant donation to the Emergency Fund this week, helping to bring the total for this year’s fund-raising drive to more than $17,500, according to a City Hall press statement.

“One of the true strengths of the Emergency Fund is that everyone in the community is invested in it,” said Mayor Rob Dolan in a statement. “We receive donations from children, young adults, and senior citizens, and people in every walk of life. Generosity knows no boundaries here in Melrose.”

The Emergency Fund provides one-time help to Melrose residents experiencing financial emergencies, reads the statement. 

All donations go directly to aid, with no administrative costs, and the fund administrator makes referrals to other local agencies if needed, reads the statement.

Watch for the Emergency Fund holiday special, featuring Mayor Dolan and other City Hall staff, which will be running frequently throughout the month of December on MMTV, reads the statement.
