Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Bank Charitable Foundation trustee has announced a $2,500 grant to The First Baptist Church in Framingham. The funds will be used to help volunteers provide “Happy Birthday, Baby” care packages for low-income mothers and pregnant teens.
According to Program Coordinator Lorna J. Mailhoit, the baskets are filled with essential items for new babies including a handmade baby blanket, bottles, clothing, diapers, and a stuffed animal.
“We are pleased to offer our support for this valuable outreach program,” said Haranas. “It shows how much can be accomplished by volunteers in our local community.” The $2,500 grant to The First Baptist Church in Framingham was among awards totaling $77,000 in the MutualOne Charitable Foundation’s most recent round of funding.
