Robert P. Lamprey, chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation, announced today that the Foundation has awarded a $5,000 grant to the MetroWest ESL Fund.
The Foundation’s donation will support the free Framingham Adult English as a Second Language PLUS program, which helps adults attain fluency in English and also provides GED and citizenship classes. The program has grown from 30 students to more than 700 students each semester since its founding in 1984.
“There is no question that this program is of great value to those in our community who want to strengthen their chances for a brighter future,” said Lamprey. “We are pleased to help MetroWest ESL provide rewarding outcomes for today’s students and to support its efforts to expand in order to accommodate the hundreds of people on its waiting list each semester.”
