MountainOne Donates $15,000 to Hillcrest Educational Centers
PITTSFIELD, Mass. Apr. 26, 2016 – MountainOne Bank has donated $15,000 to Hillcrest Educational Centers, Inc. This generous donation will support the treatment of the students who attend Hillcrest Educational Centers’ residential, day and autism programs. MountainOne Bank is also the lead sponsor for Hillcrest’s 16th Annual Fall Golf Classic and corporate contributor to the Annual Campaign.
Hillcrest offers a variety of programs to enhance its students’ therapeutic experience from gender-specific groups to vocational opportunities, such as obtaining a certificate in food safety or maintaining campus greenhouses that produce fresh flowers and vegetables for retail. These skills help students develop self-esteem and encourage them to continue their treatment in ways that can help them live more independently in the future.
“The support that MountainOne provides is critical to maintaining the quality and consistency of the cutting edge treatment that we pride ourselves on delivering. Our children deserve the best and with the support of organizations like MountainOne, we deliver the highest quality of care to the children who need it the most”, said Hillcrest’s Director of Development and Community Relations, Tim Gallagher.
