Cornerstone Bank donated $25,000 to support programs and services at the YMCA of Central Massachusetts.
“We are longtime supporters of our local YMCA because we recognize the important role the organization plays in the lives of our neighbors,” said Cornerstone Bank CEO Todd Tallman. “Our donation will be put toward four programs that benefit a diverse range of local residents.”
YMCA programs that will benefit include:
- The Achievers initiative, which supports the next generation of college students with academic assistance, adult mentorship, college prep programming and career workshops, all designed to help teens find their unique paths to higher education and beyond.
- The Numbers in the Sun program, through which an experienced math teacher delivers high-quality academic programming to children to reinforce their mathematic core competencies and comprehension in fun and engaging ways.
- LIVESTRONG, a 12-week health and wellness program that connects cancer survivors and their families with a network of physical activity programming and emotional support at no cost to participants.
- The What’s for Dinner weekly meal service that provides an assembled package of groceries to families and seniors in need. On average, 500 meals are distributed monthly.
“We are most proud to support this type of programming, which addresses real needs in our community,” said Tallman.
