The United Way of Tri-County honored bankHometown with the Good Neighbor Award on Thursday, April 6th in Framingham. The Good Neighbor Award was created to thank and honor local businesses, their leadership and employees who together make an extraordinary commitment to improving the quality of life within their communities, as well as inspiring others to take action.
“We are truly grateful that bankHometown has taken a leadership role and made a commitment to raise funds and awareness for the many United Way of Tri-County programs and services in our local neighborhoods,” said Paul Mina, President and CEO of United Way Tri-County. “From feeding hungry families, to preparing children to enter kindergarten ready for success, to ensuring no one is alone in times of crisis, your support has helped to improve lives of others.”
Jo-Ann Bussiere, Manager of the South Lancaster branch, was at the ceremony to accept the award on the bank’s behalf. “It was so inspiring, to see volunteers of all ages making a difference in our communities through their volunteer work. It shows that at any age, one can have passion and drive to better our local neighborhoods,” said Bussiere.
Guests receiving awards from United Way of Tri-County were invited to the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in Framingham for an award ceremony, followed by a catered breakfast.
