FRAMINGHAM – Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee, has announced a $75,000 Foundation pledge to MetroWest YMCA’s Heart of the Community Campaign.
The Foundation’s pledge will support MetroWest YMCA’s goal to transform and expand the Framingham Branch YMCA. The project is focused primarily on the expansion and enhancement of the current licensed child care program.
It will also strengthen the aquatics programs and create additional space for the LIVESTRONG program for cancer survivors, the Parkinson’s wellness program, and balance and falls prevention events offered to seniors.
“There is no question that the Framingham Branch YMCA is a compelling and key resource for residents of all ages in our City,” said Haranas. “Reinforcing and intensifying the offerings available today can only multiply the advantages the Y will be able to offer to those in our community in the future. We are pleased to support that goal.”
Established in 1998 as the philanthropic arm of MutualOne Bank, the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has since donated over $4.1 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
