The Foundation award will help fund the salaries of a summer staff for the on-site recreation and outdoor play camp program that was started by the Housing Authority five years ago.
Framingham Housing Authority Executive Director Stephen G. Keane, said last year’s program for the Musterfield community was supported by a grant from the Attorney General’s office.
There is no open grant opportunity from the state this year, he said.
“The program provides supervised outdoor recreation opportunity for youngsters who might otherwise be glued to a computer or television screen all day,” said Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee. “The Musterfield recreation program is a viable and valuable alternative to screen time. We’re pleased to help guarantee that it will be available to the residents and their families again this year.”
