FRAMINGHAM – As many as 80 Framingham youngsters will have a summer camp in their own Musterfield Place backyard again this year, thanks to a recent $10,000 grant from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation.
The award will cover salaries for four teenage staffers hired to assist at the popular summer program highlighting outdoor play and recreational activities including supervised trips to nearby Learned Pond. Rainy day activities involve computers, books, table games, and arts and crafts.
“We’re pleased to help provide the youngsters at Musterfield Place with this positive opportunity for fun during their long summer vacation,” said Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee, in a media release.
The $10,000 grant supporting the Musterfield Place summer camp program was among awards totaling $78,000 in the Foundation’s most recent round of funding.
Established in 1998 as the philanthropic arm of MutualOne Bank, the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has since donated over $4 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
