Robert P. Lamprey, chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation, announced today that the Foundation has awarded $5,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/Metrowest.
The award will support local one-to-one mentoring programs provided to Framingham and Natick youth who are facing adversity in their lives. According to CEO Jeffrey Chin, the local program serves over 100 at-risk children, the majority of whom are from single-family and/or low socio-economically disadvantaged homes. The Foundation award will help the organization reach even more children in need of adult role models, according to Chin.
“The success of the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program today can have a significant impact on our community in years ahead,” said Lamprey. “It is an investment we are pleased to make, with the goal of a brighter future for all.”
