CANTON, Mass. (July 7, 2021) – Bank of Canton recently donated $5,000 to the Massachusetts Hospital School Foundation, to fund the purchase of five new Advance Mobility Freedom Strollers for the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children’s (PRHC) newly created running club, The Chariots.
“Our recreational programs are vital to our patients’ quality of life,” said Ruby Cherfils, CEO of PRHC. “The running club is an opportunity for our patients to feel physically and emotionally empowered, and become active participants in their surrounding community.
“The new mobility strollers that Bank of Canton funded will bring excitement and new experiences to many eager children and young adults,” Cherfils continued. “We are very grateful for the bank’s contribution and its longstanding support of our mission and our patients.”
Since 2005, Bank of Canton has given more than $2.42 million to local charities and nonprofit organizations through donations and sponsorships. In 2020, the bank was recognized with a Corporate Citizenship Award from the Boston Business Journal for the second straight year.
“Bank of Canton is proud to support PRHC and its new Chariots running club,” said Stephen P. Costello, president and CEO of Bank of Canton. “We’re a bank that believes in community, and we’re very pleased to make a contribution that helps these young adults experience and enjoy more community activities.”
