2022 Community Leadership Reception
The Foundation for MetroWest hosted the 9th annual Community Leadership Reception on September 29, 2022. We officially launched the MetroWest Workforce Development Project and celebrated our corporate community’s commitment to the MetroWest.
The MetroWest Workforce Development Project focuses on income inequality that persists in the MetroWest and provides a path to financial stability for under resourced youth and underemployed or unemployed adults. Executive Director Jay Kim discussed the initial programs we are funding through this project, and why this is critical for our region.
We also honored the unwavering commitment of Middlesex Savings Bank as they received this year’s Community Leadership Award, and Robert A. Vigoda, former Trustee and champion of the Foundation’s mission, as he was inducted into the Distinguished Advisor Society.
Thank you to Andrew Gallinaro of National Development and Rachel Marks of CBRE for their support co-chairing this event.
Watch the honoree tribute videos to hear why they are so deserving of the awards they received!
