Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee, announced that the Foundation has awarded $6,000 to St. Bridget’s Food Pantry in Framingham.
Now in its 26th year, St. Bridget’s Food Pantry provides food assistance to Framingham residents who, through socioeconomic or health factors, are unable to meet their need for food. The Pantry helps about 150 households a week and additional families and individuals at holiday times. Clients receive pre-packaged non-perishable foods and additional choice meat, dairy, and produce items, depending on inventory.
The Foundation grant will help provide nutritious choices and holiday foods to those in need throughout the year.
“We’re pleased to support the St. Bridget’s Food Pantry’s mission of providing for residents of our community who are facing challenges in their lives,” said Haranas. “We want to help make sure that no one walks away empty-handed.”
“The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has been a wonderful supporter of our food pantry,” said St. Bridget’s Food Pantry Director Mary Kulas. “We are thankful for their continued generosity in helping us with our mission.”
