North Shore Bank Helps Children of Lynn's The REAL Program

North Shore Bank recently presented The Real Program in Lynn, Massachusetts with a $1,000 donation to assist struggling children and families with access to quality educational opportunities. The contribution helped the organization install a new handicap ramp at their facility for disabled visitors.

The REAL Program is a non-profit which works to address literacy issues by providing books, homework assistance, healthy snacks and dinners, enrichment opportunities, college campus visits and just plain healthy fun to children in a safe, caring environment, plus English language tutoring for their parents.

Activities are made possible through a service-learning model designed to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for retired teachers and professionals and quality service-learning opportunities for high school and college students. Through the collaborative efforts of many individuals, The REAL Program is making a difference in the lives of children. 

Jan Plourde, Director of The Real Program, Inc., stated,

“North Shore Bank is a community-focused bank. Their support will help us towards our short term goal of establishing a secure and financially sustainable home for The REAL Program and to expand services and opportunities to support families within the immediate vicinity of the Brickett School in Lynn.”
