The foundation is supported by 155 member banks of the MBA throughout Massachusetts and New England, including two local Haverhill banks, Pentucket Bank and Haverhill Bank.
“We feel a small measure of pride once again to be able to help these deserving nonprofits,” said Charles P. O’Brien, chairman of the MBA Charitable Foundation and president and CEO of Adams Community Bank. “Yet we are still humbled by the realization that there is so much need across the Commonwealth. That’s why each year, we rededicate ourselves to this effort to help in any way we can.”
