BOSTON, January 3, 2017 – Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) was awarded a grant of $5,000 from the Massachusetts Bankers Association (MBA)Charitable Foundation. The Foundation, supported by the 155 member banks of the MBA throughout Massachusetts and New England, distributed 37 grants in 2016 totaling a record amount of $155,000 over eight geographic regions in Massachusetts. BCNC has been selected as one of the deserving social services agencies. MBA member East Boston Savings Bank nominated BCNC for the grant. “We feel a small measure of pride, once again, to be able to help these deserving nonprofits,” said Charles P. O’Brien, chairman of the MBA Charitable Foundation and president and CEO of Adams Community Bank. “Yet we are still humbled by the realization that there is so much need across the Commonwealth. That’s why each year, we rededicate ourselves to this effort to help in any way we can.”
