FRAMINGHAM – Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a Foundation trustee, announced a $5,000 grant to Read to a Child to support their Read Aloud Mentoring Program at the Woodrow Wilson and Brophy elementary schools in Framingham.

The Read Aloud Mentoring Program pairs high-risk students in grades one through four with adult volunteer mentors for weekly one-on-one read aloud sessions. MutualOne Bank has supported Read to a Child annually since 2013.

“The Read to a Child Mentoring Program is a model for helping high-risk children achieve academic success,” said Sousa. “We are pleased to continue our support through the MutualOne Foundation.”

The $5,000 grant to Read to a Child was among awards totaling $91,500 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 $5.1 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
