bankHometown Commits $10,000 to Millbury Parents Club

bankHometown and its charitable giving program, The Giving Tree, recently pledged $10,000 over three years to the Millbury Parents Club, supporting the club’s mission to fund educational activities and experiences for students in Millbury Public Schools. This brings the bank’s support over the last decade to more than $30,000. “Education is the key to a bright future, and Millbury Parents Club plays a critical role in ensuring that students gain access to unique learning experiences,” said bankHometown President and CEO Robert J. Morton. “We’re happy to make this additional investment in our children and to help unlock their full potential.” Founded in the 1970s, the all-volunteer Millbury Parents Club hosts fundraisers throughout the year to support various initiatives for students in preschool through grade 12 that are not funded by the school budget. These include recent funding for reading and literacy programs at Elmwood Street School and field trip and enrichment opportunities for multiple grade levels. “We’re excited to renew our partnership with bankHometown and grateful for their generosity,” said Millbury Parents Club President Jessica Orsi. “Their ongoing commitment to the students of Millbury will allow us to continue funding programs that are meaningful and enriching to our kids’ educational experience.” In the PhotoMillbury Parents Club President Jessica Orsi and bankHometown Elm St., Millbury office Vice President, Branch Officer Christine Lucier along with third, fourth, and sixth grade students from the Raymond E.
