Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee has announced a $500 grant to the Framingham Garden Club to underwrite the operating costs for a spring fundraising event.
According to Framingham Garden Club President Nancy Martin, the event is expected to raise between $6,000 and $7,000. The proceeds will be used to continue and expand beautification, horticultural and floral design programs in the City, award scholarships to Framingham High School seniors and support the 3rd grade program at Garden in the Woods.
“We are pleased to support this fundraising event,” said Sousa. “It’s a great example of how our community giving can be multiplied through the efforts of a dedicated volunteer organization.”
