Foundation awards $5,000 to Mazie Mentoring Program for at-risk students

MazieThe MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation’s three-year Mentoring Program for at-risk Framingham teens.

The MutualOne Foundation grant will help defray the Mentoring Program’s 2013 costs for laptop computers and software given to program mentees who have achieved basic goals toward the pursuit of a college education.

This is the sixth consecutive year that MutualOne has supported the Mentoring Program.

“We strongly support the goal of encouraging at-risk students to graduate from high school and to think seriously about college or other post-secondary education,” said Robert P. Lamprey, chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation.

“Our Board appreciates the Bank’s past and current support, for without MutualOne Charitable Foundation we would not be able to absorb the annual cost of the computers,” said Executive Director Lowell I. Mazie. “We sincerely appreciate this.”
