NATICK – Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee, announced the Foundation has awarded a $7,500 grant to A Place To Turn.
Located in Natick, A Place To Turn assists low-income MetroWest families and individuals with basic needs of food and clothing.
The MutualOne award will provide funding for A Place To Turn’s “Eat Fresh” program that offers clients fresh fruits and vegetables in addition to routine food pantry items.
This is the seventh consecutive year that the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has contributed to the “Eat Fresh” program, according to A Place to Turn Executive Director Joanne Barry.
“This is a time-tested program that takes traditional food pantry selections to a fresher, healthier level,” said Sousa.” We are happy to help.”
The $7,500 grant to A Place To Turn was among awards totaling $38,000 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 $4.5 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.
