Middlesex Savings Foundation Donates $1.4 Million to Food Pantries, Senior Centers and Libraries

 Middlesex Savings Bank, one of the largest mutual banks in Massachusetts, announced that its Charitable Foundation made a $1.4 million donation to 84 community service organizations.

Thirty-one food pantries each received a donation of $20,000 while 27 libraries and 26 senior centers each received $15,000.

According to Mike McAuliffe, president and CEO of Middlesex Savings Bank, “We are humbled to give this gift, which is a celebration of the amazing non-profit organizations, their staffs and volunteers that work tirelessly to provide services and programs to our community. As a mutual bank, one of our core values is to be an integral part of our community and we take that responsibility seriously. We are fortunate to be in a strong financial position to give this gift to the community, which will support the many people who we are honored to call customers, neighbors, family and friends.”

Middlesex Savings Bank and its Foundation explicitly chose to give to each of the food pantries, libraries and senior centers within its community because of the diverse cross-section of individuals that these organizations reach and support.

The organizations were honored by the Bank and Foundation and received their donations at an event held on January 24, 2019 at the Middlesex Savings Bank offices in Westborough.
