Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank, announced today that the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $10,000 to help fund two Project Just Because initiatives.
The grant is directed to support the organization’s Back to School Program and its Holiday Wish List Program for low-income families.
According to President and Founder Cherylann Lambert Walsh, the two programs provide school and holiday items while creating “an element of hope for a brighter tomorrow.”
Walsh added that for more than 11 years, Project Just Because has been “dedicated to helping as many men, women and children as we can — providing dignity and love from the heart in a caring environment.”
“The Foundation’s support will help Project Just Because keep pace with the growing need here in the MetroWest area,” said Haranas.
The $10,000 grant to Project Just Because was among awards totaling $45,000 made by the Foundation in its most recent round of funding.
