FRAMINGHAM – A recent $10,000 grant from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation will be used to enhance community assistance programs provided by The Salvation Army Framingham Corps.
According to Major Wendy Kountz, Commanding Officer of the Framingham Corps, the funds will be used to support their food insecurity program, provide for the needs of new mothers, and rental assistance to veterans, seniors and low-income residents.
“We believe in supporting programs that address the immediate needs of those around us,” said Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee. “The Salvation Army is a great example of what can be done to build a stronger community.”
The $10,000 grant to the Salvation Army was among awards totaling $77,000 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 $4.7 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.
