Seventy Framingham youngsters will continue to receive after-school help, thanks to a recent $3,500 grant from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation.
Announcement of the grant to Hoops and Homework, Inc. was made by Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a Foundation trustee.
Hoops and Homework provides free daily after-school educational and recreational activities to eligible students ages 5 to 15 at two Framingham low-income housing developments.
According to Hoops and Homework President Herb Chasan, the funds will be used to ensure students have a safe, high quality, enriching program experience with oversight by trained and caring adults.
“Ensuring all students have the chance for a bright future can make all the difference,” said Sousa, in a press release. “We are pleased to support the vital role Hoops and Homework plays in making that happen.”
