They brought heat and light


To the Editor:

With deep appreciation, the MV Family Center wishes to acknowledge the generous gift of an installed, energy-efficient HVAC split system from Nelson Mechanical Design for our Fannie Blair building. Brissette Electric kindly donated the electrical work to get it up and running. The result is the transformation of a cold, dank room into a warm, dry comfortable space for learning. Each year, over 500 Island families with children from infants up to 8 years old participate in MV Family Center activities for free, including parent education workshops, support groups, individual parent consultations, parent/child activities, and resource and referral. We couldn’t do it without the support of our community partners.

Thank you to the crews of Nelson Mechanical Design and Brissette Electric for their expertise, efficiency, and good humor. Martha’s Vineyard is fortunate to have a vibrant business community whose generosity benefits us all. Please remember them when you shop. Buying locally is an investment in our community in more ways than one.

With gratitude,

Marney Toole
