Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank, announced today that Framingham High School has been awarded $4,000 as a result of the Bank’s most-recent Checking for Charity initiative.
The Bank announced last spring that it would donate $10 to be shared equally by Natick High School and Framingham High School for every new personal or business checking account opened during the promotion. Each school received a check for $4,000 in separate presentations earlier this month.
At Framingham High School, the $4,000 Checking for Charity gift will be used to purchase a new high definition projector for the auditorium, according to Principal Michael J. Welch.
“The auditorium/theater is used constantly by many different groups for the school and the entire community,” Welch said. ”Our original projector gave out over a year ago, and the current replacement was borrowed from another part of the building. The purchase of a new HD projector will be a welcome addition to this beautiful space.
“On behalf of the Framingham High School community, we would like to express our sincere gratitude,” he added.
Previous MutualOne Bank Checking for Charity beneficiaries include Natick Veterans Relief Fund, Buddy Dog Humane Society, Ovations for a Cure, and the American Cancer Society.
The Checking for Charity promotion now underway at MutualOne Bank will benefit both Framingham’s Callahan Senior Center and the Natick Community-Senior Center.
