This year the Middle Island Civic Association “adopted” the Ridge Rest Home for its Holiday Outreach.  Members purchased and donated funds for much needed basic clothing items, such as socks, underwear and warm shirts, and MICA also donated 500 personal-sized soap bars and 300 disposable razors. Members also made individual toiletry gift bags. We gathered on December 18th for our annual “Wrap” Party, at which all donated items were festively prepared.  First Vice President Margaret Malloy, MICA’s Outreach Coordinator, delivered the gifts the next day to a very appreciative Ridge Rest Home staff for distribution to the more than fifty residents.  Many thanks to our generous MICA members and expert wrappers, as well as to Margaret for her handling of this event.
