The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $10,000 to the Natick Service Council to support the organization’s Case Management and Heart Healthy Food Pantry programs for individuals and families experiencing hardship or economic uncertainty. Announcement of the grant was made today by Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a Foundation trustee.
According to Executive Director Greg Tutuny, 700 client families are currently served by the Case Management program, which is the gateway to all Natick Service Council programs and services. Over 67% of the families served rely on the Heart Healthy Food Pantry.
“We are pleased to support the Council’s efforts to help vulnerable local residents overcome the challenges they face as they strive for self-sufficiency,” said Sousa.
