Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank, has announced a $9,350 donation to A Place To Turn. The award was made at the conclusion of the Bank’s 2017 Checking for Charity initiative, which promised a $10 donation to a designated local charity with each opening of a new personal or business checking account.
Located in Natick, A Place To Turn helps meet the basic food and clothing needs of low-income MetroWest families and individuals referred by a network of social service agencies, health care providers, schools, and clergy.
“Checking for Charity gives us the opportunity to welcome new checking account customers by donating to local charities on their behalf,” said Sousa. “We are pleased to partner with our customers in this way to help build a stronger community for all.”
Since its introduction in 2008, Checking for Charity has benefited the Framingham History Center, Natick Historical Society, Framingham High School, Natick High School, Natick Veterans Relief Fund, Buddy Dog Humane Society, Framingham Public Library, Morse Institute Library, Callahan Senior Center, Natick Community-Senior Center, Ovations for a Cure, and the American Cancer Society.
