Cooperative Elder Services, Inc. (CESI) recently received a $1,000 grant from the Stoneham Savings – Salem Five Charitable Foundation. CESI of Burlington will use the grant to supplement the cost of nutritious meals for low-income elders who live in Stoneham, Burlington, Woburn, Billerica, and Wilmington. The Nutrition Program is very successful thanks to the generosity of Stoneham Savings-Salem Five, and other local banks.
