Robert P. Lamprey, chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation, has announced a grant in the amount of $9,125 to SPARK Kindness, a Natick-based nonprofit devoted to creating and supporting a community culture that empowers youth and promotes kindness and respect.
With its award, MutualOne will be the premier corporate sponsor for the third season of the organization’s “Resilient Parent, Resilient Child” speaker series hosted at Natick High School and open to the entire MetroWest community.
The Foundation award will help build upon and strengthen the program by the addition of outstanding speakers and experts from beyond the local community. Planned topics include Internet safety/digital citizenship, mental wellness, inclusive education, bullying prevention, and substance abuse prevention.
“SPARK Kindness is helping to strengthen our community by directly addressing the concerns of local families and their children,” said Lamprey. “This type of programming is invaluable, and MutualOne is pleased to help make it even more impactful going forward.”
