The local nonprofit group MiHi held a holiday basket bingo extravaganza Sunday at the Elks Club to raise money to maintain its Project Lifesaver program and honor a commitment to help pay for a new handicap-accessible playground at Marshall Street School in Hagerstown, according to an email from the organization’s ambassador-at-large, Mary Besecker.

Also known as Many Individuals Helping Individuals, the group is celebrating its 25th anniversary, according to a letter promoting the event.

MiHi helps provide assistance to people with disabilities and to senior citizens, developing and supporting projects and educational programs, with an emphasis on making recreational activities accessible to all citizens, according to the letter.

Project Lifesaver, created by MiHi, allows the Washington County Sheriff’s Office to track individuals with mental disorders who tend to wander and get lost, according to the letter and MiHi’s website at www.mihi.org.
