It was a great day of friendship and competition at this year’s 20th George Wheeler Cup. The annual event brings together soccer players and families from Natick and Framingham while raising money for four awards given to Framingham and Natick High graduating senior soccer players.
It was a beautiful day as neighbors, friends and family gathered for Natick Days, a “festival of entertainment that celebrates our community.” During the event visitors to our booth picked up gifts and goodies, as well as met Mo, the MutualOne Bank mascot!
We were pleased to once again take part in Scoopapalooza at the Natick Common on Saturday, June 27. And our team of employees had fun handling out special ice cream dishes to help visitors satisfy their sweet tooth!
Proceeds from the annual outdoor ice cream fest, help support youth scholarships and SPARK Kindness’ “Resilient Parent, Resilient Child” program.
If you passed by our Concord Street office recently you may have noticed our parking lot buzzing with all kinds of activity – as we served as host for the Framingham Girls Scouts’ latest fundraiser. We were happy to see a steady stream of visitors stop by for a quick car wash and tasty treat in support of the Scouts. Congratulations on a great event, girls!
The MutualOne Charitable Foundation was the primary co-sponsor of two local Earth Day events: Natick Green-up Week and the Natick Earth Day Festival’s Creature Teachers exhibit.
The sun was shining on the Natick Common as we laced up our sneakers in support of Family Promise Metrowest’s ‘Walk Away Homelessness’ on Sunday, April 11. Before the start of the 3.1-mile walk, our employees greeted many of the participants and had fun handing out giveaways to visitors of our booth.
The over $95,000 raised during the event will help fund the organization’s housing transitional program. Thank you to all of our employees, friends and neighbors who made the event such a success.
MutualOne Bank recently awarded $1,000 to Natick Center Associates, a nonprofit organization comprised of community members and local businesses committed to making Natick Center a vital exciting place.
The Bank’s contribution will help fund the group’s annual “Heart of the Community” dinner. This year’s fundraising event will be held at the Dolphin Seafood Restaurant on Sunday, March 22 and will honor the Morse Institute and Bacon Free Library’s for their contributions to the betterment of Natick Center.
We recently awarded the sum of $5,000 to the Christa McAuliffe Regional Charter Public School through our Charitable Foundation.
According to Foundation President Robert P. Lamprey, the grant was awarded in support of the School’s plans to move from its present Clinton Street location in Framingham to a larger facility where both building and grounds will better meet the unique needs of its Expeditionary Learning program.
One of only 165 Expeditionary Learning Schools in the nation and 15 in Massachusetts, McAuliffe Regional will reach full capacity in the coming school year with 306 students in grades 6, 7 and 8, and a long waiting list. The School hopes to increase enrollment capacity over the next three years, said Executive Director Kristin Harrison.
