Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a trustee of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation, announced today that the Foundation has awarded $2,500 to Everybody Wins!, an educational initiative in Framingham’s Brophy and Woodrow Wilson schools.
The Foundation’s donation will support the Everybody Wins! Power Lunch program at the two schools. The program serves more than 130 students in grades 1 – 4 who are at risk of educational failure. Power Lunch volunteers visit the school one day a week and read books aloud to students during their lunchtime, to instill a love for reading, improve listening and reading skills, increase vocabulary, and foster self-esteem.
