How You Can Help:

We greatly appreciate the incredible support from our community! We hope you understand, at this time, due to constraints regarding public access to our schools, community volunteers are unable to assist with the distribution process. However, in order to keep our families fed, if you would still like to contribute, the Mary Lyon Foundation is accepting donations! You can mail your check, made payable to the Mary Lyon Foundation to:

Mary Lyon Foundation
PO Box 184
Shelburne Falls, MA 01370

In the check memo, please indicate: Student Assistance Program

You may also make an online gift via the foundation’s website at marylyonfoundation.org . Simply click the “Make a Donation” button found at the top of the page.
