FRAMINGHAM – Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee has announced a $10,000 grant to Natick’s Morse Institute Library to support their initiative to digitize 84 microfilm rolls of the Natick Bulletin issues from 1869-2004.

“The Natick Bulletin is the local newspaper of record for the Town of Natick, yet the early issues are not digitally accessible anywhere,” said Morse Institute Board of Trustees President Kathleen Donovan. “This project will create a one-of-a-kind archive that is keyword searchable and is accessible to anyone from anywhere.”

“We are pleased to assist the Library in their efforts to preserve the history of the Town of Natick,” said Sousa.

The $10,000 grant to the Morse Institute Library was among awards totaling $131,500 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 $5 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
