FRAMINGHAM – With its recent $5,000 donation to United Way of Tri-County (UWTC), the MutualOne Charitable Foundation was able to provide full holiday meals to 100 local families.
The grant was announced by Robert P. Lamprey, chair of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation.
According to Paul Mina, president and CEO of UWTC, the goal for this year’s Feed a Family for $50 campaign in Framingham was to provide 1,600 holiday meals to families in addition to their regular monthly groceries.
“Addressing food security ensures all individuals are better able to achieve their full potential to thrive,” Mina said.
“It is heartwarming to know that, with help from throughout the community, families who struggle every day to make ends meet are able to sit down to the traditional holiday meal enjoyed each year by so many of their neighbors,” said Lamprey.
The $5,000 grant to United Way of Tri-County’s holiday meals program was among awards totaling $128,068 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 $4.3 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.
