With its recent $10,000 donation to United Way of Tri-County (UWTC), the MutualOne Charitable Foundation was able to provide full holiday meals to 200 local families. The grant was announced by Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee. This is the sixth consecutive year the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has supported the Feed a Family campaign.
According to Paul Mina, president and CEO of UWTC, each $50 donation provides a family with a complete holiday meal.
“By providing meals, we are not just helping people meet their nutritional needs. A holiday meal represents a time for family to reflect and give thanks for what they have,” Mina said. “This year will look different without families gathering as in past years. Despite that, families will find new ways to celebrate and give thanks over a table full of food.”
“It gives us great pleasure to support a program that allows families who struggle every day to make ends enjoy the traditional holiday meal that too many of us take for granted,” said Sousa.
