Fifty-five Framingham youngsters will continue to receive after-school help, thanks to a recent $2,500 grant from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation. Announcement of the grant to Hoops and Homework, Inc. was made by Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a Foundation trustee.
Hoops and Homework provides free daily after-school educational and recreational activities to eligible elementary and middle school students at two Framingham low-income housing developments. Programs include improving reading and math skills, workshops on studying skills, problem solving, exercise, and academic enrichment activities.
“Helping these students prepare for a bright future can make all the difference,” said Sousa. “We are pleased to support Hoops and Homework’s vital role in making that happen.”
