UniBank, the largest Mutual Community Bank in Central Massachusetts, recently donated more than $25,000 to 12 local food pantries, including $2,000 to Project Just Because in Hopkinton.
Michael Welch, CEO of UniBank said, “As it is the mission of the bank to serve the people within the communities that we have branches in, we were pleased to present numerous food pantries with monetary donations, as now more than ever, their guests’ food insecurities are at an all time high. When we listened to each pantry need, it was clear that it wasn’t only about stocking shelves. These volunteers were offering life support including emotional and mental well-being assistance, career placement assistance, and places to gather for camaraderie.”
Welch continued, “UniBank was founded on supporting people on an individual basis as we all do better collectively when needs are met one-on-one. As we close out 2022 and our 150 + 2 Year Anniversary, we’re looking to continue our giving in 2023.”
UniBank is rooted in the Blackstone Valley with assets of $2.5 billion as of September 30, 2022. A full-service, mutually owned community bank, UniBank has branches in Central Massachusetts and the MetroWest region of Massachusetts.
