OXFORD, MASSACHUSETTS — bankHometown recently donated $20,000 to Sutton Recreational Resources for the renovation of the Unity Park Playground at 7 Boston Road, Sutton. The contribution will be used toward creating a completely revitalized play space, featuring state-of-the-art playground equipment for children ages 6 months to 12 years as well as ADA-accessible areas and play equipment.

Sutton Recreational Resources is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization established to fundraise and oversee the renovation of the decades-old playground, which needs a complete overhaul in order to meet current safety standards. The organization has partnered with the Town of Sutton, and the project was awarded a $100,000 grant from the Massachusetts Parkland Acquisitions for Communities (PARC) grant program through an application by the town. The partnership is looking to raise an additional $100,000 through grassroots efforts to match the grant and has already raised approximately $78,000.

“This revitalized playground will be a great way to get kids outside and active in a safe and fun environment,” said bankHometown President and CEO, Robert J. Morton. “bankHometown is pleased to make this contribution to help this project come to life and is asking other businesses and individuals in the community to do the same. No contribution is too small.”

Those wishing to support this important community project can do so in a number of ways. Business contributions and donations may be made payable to “Town of Sutton” with “Unity Park” on the memo line and mailed to Town of Sutton, c/o Jennifer Hager, 4 Uxbridge Road, Sutton, Mass., 01590. Donations also may be sent to Sutton Recreational Resources, 10 Burbank Road, Sutton, Mass., 01590 or made using PayPal to PayPal.me/UnityPlayground.
