FRAMINGHAM – The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $10,000 to the Natick Service Council to support the organization’s Sustainable Homes programs for those experiencing hardship or economic uncertainty. Announcement of the grant was made today, January 9, by Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a Foundation trustee.
According to Executive Director Greg Tutuny, the Sustainable Homes program is designed to address client barriers to self-sufficiency, and prevent homelessness among families struggling to pay for basic human needs.
“We are pleased to support the Council’s efforts to help vulnerable local residents overcome the challenges they face as they strive for independence,” said Sousa.
The $10,000 grant to the Natick Service Council was among awards totaling $128,068 in the MutualOne Charitable 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 $4.3 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
MutualOne Bank, which operates under an 1889 state charter, has full-service offices at 828 Concord Street and One Lincoln Street in Framingham and at 49 Main Street in Natick, a Commercial Loan Center at 160 Cochituate Road in Framingham, and a Residential Loan Center at 49 Main Street in Natick.
