“MutualOne Bank is, and always has been, a great benefactor,” Ramsey added. “Their generosity will help us respond to the unmet needs many of our seniors have because of this harsh winter season, such as emergency fuel and food resources.

“The balance of the grant will allow us to sponsor programs at the Center that will be offered — many at no charge — to meet additional individual and broader needs,” she added.
