Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank, has announced a $4,115 donation to resiliency for Life. The award was made at the conclusion of the Bank’s 2019 Checking for Charity initiative, which promised a $10 donation to be shared equally by Resiliency for Life and SPARK Kindness for every new personal or business checking account opened during the year.
Resiliency for Life is a highly successful partnership with the Framingham Public Schools offering an academic intervention and dropout prevention program that develops skills and confidence in students with social difficulties who are at-risk of academic failure.
“Checking for Charity gives us the opportunity to welcome new checking account customers by donating to local charities on their behalf,” said Sousa. “We are pleased to partner with our customers in this way to help build a stronger community for all.”
Prior Checking for Charity initiatives have benefited Downtown Framingham, Inc., Natick Center Cultural District, A Place to Turn, Framingham History Center, Natick Historical Society, Framingham High School, Natick High School, Natick Veterans Relief Fund, Buddy Dog Humane Society, Framingham Public Library, Morse Institute Library, Callahan Senior Center, Natick Community-Senior Center, Ovations for the Cure, and the American Cancer Society.
