People’s United Community Foundation of Eastern Massachusetts, the charitable arm of People’s United Bank (Massachusetts), recently donated $15,000 to Building a Better Beverly in support of Mayor Cahill’s Summer Literacy Program.
The Summer Literacy Program will fund 120 students for 6 weeks of summer literacy learning and fun day camp at the YMCA. The program was designed to support Beverly first and second grade students at risk of falling behind during the summer months. The students invited to the program will participate at no cost to their families.
“Building a Better Beverly is doing important work through their Summer Literacy Program, engaging students to become better readers,” said Patrick Sullivan, President of People’s United Bank. “I am looking forward to seeing the Summer Literacy Program grow from 54 students in 2015 to 120 students this year.”
