Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and Chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation, announced that St. Bridget’s Food Pantry in Framingham has been awarded a $10,000 Foundation Grant.
Now in its 29th year, St. Bridget’s Food Pantry provides food assistance to Framingham residents who, through socioeconomic or health factors, are unable to meet their need for food. The Pantry helps about 140 households a week with the need increasing at holiday time. The Foundation grant will help provide nutritious choices, holiday foods and non-perishable items.
“This is a time when we all need to step forward to help those in need,” said Haranas. “The St. Bridget’s Food Pantry’s mission is to provide for residents of our community who are facing challenges in their lives. We are pleased to support that endeavor.”
