Oxford, Massachusetts —bankHometown recently pledged to donate an additional $10,000 to the Millbury Parents Club. The bank’s commitment, which will be funded over three years, supports the club’s mission to fund educational activities and cultural experiences for students in Millbury Public Schools. With the recent merger of bankHometown and Millbury Savings, this contribution demonstrates bankHometown’s continued commitment to the Millbury schools and extends Millbury Savings’ previous commitment an additional three years.

“Millbury Parents Club plays a vital role in ensuring our students’ learning is always a top priority,” said Robert J. Morton, bankHometown’s president and chief executive officer. “We are happy to make this investment in our children in order to help enrich their learning experiences.”

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, support for the high school’s Robotics Club and Animal Adventures program, and learning materials and field trip transportation for multiple grade levels.

"We’re thrilled to renew our relationship with bankHometown and are grateful for their generosity and commitment to the students of Millbury,” said Pam Cristo, Millbury Parents Club president. “Their support will help us to continue to subsidize important programs and events for students in all of our town’s schools.”
