FRAMINGHAM – Mark Haranas, MutualOne Bank CEO and MutualOne Charitable Foundation chairman, announced that the Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (MABVI), a division of MAB Community Services, to support their assistive technology training center located at the Natick Community/Senior Center.
“This grant will help address the digital divide for older adults with disabilities,” said Haranas. “Learning to use technological tools will help seniors live more productive, healthier, and safer lives.”
The $5,000 grant to MABVI 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.
