MutualOne Bank’s annual Checking for Charity initiative will benefit two local community-building nonprofit organizations: SPARK Kindness and Resiliency for Life.
According to Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer, MutualOne Bank will donate $10 for each new personal or business checking account opened during the Checking for Charity promotion. The funds will be shared equally by the two designated organizations.
SPARK Kindness, which stands for Successful Positive Authentic Resilient Kids, is a Natick based organization whose mission is to create a community where no child or family feels alone, bullied, unsupported or unconnected. Resiliency for Life is a Framingham based organization that serves a high-needs population with a voluntary academic intervention and dropout prevention program to help kids who are at risk of academic failure.
“Each of these groups has found a way to serve a specific need in our communities,” said Sousa, “we are proud to support their shared goal of assisting students in achieving their academic, social and emotional needs with this year’s Checking for Charity campaign.”
Since its introduction in 2008, Checking for Charity has benefited Downtown Framingham, Inc., the Natick Center Cultural District, A Place To Turn, 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.
