TAUNTON, MASSACHUSETTS: The Mechanics Cooperative Bank Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team are pleased to announce the support of PRIDE Inc. in Taunton, MA with a $2,500 gift in support of their pavilion capital campaign.

PRIDE Inc. is actively raising money to purchase a pavilion so that our participants, families, and community stakeholders have a place to gather outside that is safe, comfortable and inviting.

Since the start of the pandemic, space has become a major concern for PRIDE’s population. An outdoor covered area will provide a safe place to meet and will benefit everyone associated with PRIDE. An outdoor pavilion would allow their participants to meet outside during both calm and inclement weather while keeping themselves socially distant from others. PRIDE is actively working to make changes like these to accommodate their population’s needs, while keeping health and safety a top priority.

PRIDE, Inc. is a non-profit organization providing quality vocational, alternative residential and social programs for individuals with cognitive, developmental and/or intellectual disabilities in the southeast Massachusetts area. Donations in support of this campaign can also be made on the PRIDE Inc. website at www.pride-inc.org.
