FRAMINGHAM – Mark Haranas, MutualOne Bank CEO and MutualOne Charitable Foundation chair announced a $15,000 grant to the Framingham Public Library Foundation (FPLF) to assist in the creation of a Technology Learning Center at the Main Library.
“This initiative will create a classroom for staff to help patrons of all ages master the latest in technology so they can conduct research, search for jobs, create graphics, and discover other uses for the digital tools,” said Haranas. “Such a facility has never been available in the library, and we are pleased to support its creation.”
The $15,000 grant to the Library Foundation was among awards totaling $86,000 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 $5.3 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.
