Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank, announced today that the Bank has awarded $2,300 to four local charities. The donations were made at the conclusion of the Bank’s renovation celebration at its downtown Natick office.
For each checking account opened during the celebration, MutualOne Bank pledged to give $100 to one of four charities: Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, Natick Visiting Nurse Association, Kids Connect, and Natick Community Organic Farm. Those opening accounts selected among the four charities.
“This was an extension of our ongoing Checking for Charity program, which is our way of thanking our newest checking account customers for choosing MutualOne Bank,” said Sousa. “It’s also a way to reinforce our commitment to supporting people and programs in the communities we serve.”
Since its introduction in 2008, the MutualOne Bank Checking for Charity promotion has benefited Framingham High School, Natick High School, the Natick Veterans Relief Fund, Buddy Dog Humane Society, Ovations for a Cure, the American Cancer Society, the Callahan Center in Framingham, the Natick Community-Senior Center, Framingham Public Library, and Natick’s Morse Institute Library.
