CANTON, Mass. (April 13, 2016) – Bank of Canton helped send Massachusetts Hospital School patients to Disney World last week, with a $4,000 donation to the hospital’s charitable foundation. Bank of Canton is a longtime supporter of MHS’ 31-year-old tradition of sending graduating students to Disney World.
“We’re very, very grateful to Bank of Canton for their continuing support of our young adults, and for keeping this honored tradition alive,” said Massachusetts Hospital School CEO Brian Devin. A pediatric chronic-care hospital, MHS assists children and young adults with multiple disabilities to achieve their optimal level of independence in all aspects of life.
“The senior trip to Disney World is so important to our kids,” Devin continued. “Not only do these young adults and staff get to enjoy a final adventure together before their time at MHS comes to an end, but for those who go, it’s an opportunity to discover how much they’re capable of beyond our walls. It provides them with greater confidence and self-assurance as they approach adult life.”
Since 2005, Bank of Canton has given more than $1.25 million to local charities and nonprofit organizations through donations and sponsorships. The bank’s contributions have helped fund financial literacy programs for children and seniors, educational workshops for first-time home buyers, and cultural and artistic enrichment programs.
“We’re very proud to support the staff and kids at MHS,” said Stephen P. Costello, president and CEO of Bank of Canton. “The MHS team works extremely hard to provide these children with opportunities that enrich their lives and help them reach their full potential. The staff’s dedication is remarkable.”
