Northern Bank Teams Up with New England’s Rookie Sony Michel and 98.5 the Sports Hub to Help End Homelessness In Boston


BOSTON – September 4, 2018 – Northern Bank, a Massachusetts-based community and business bank, today announced a partnership with 98.5 the Sports Hub and New England’s Rookie Running Back Sony Michel for the “Taking it to the House” campaign. Northern Bank will donate $1,000 to Heading Home Inc. for every New England touchdown during the regular 2018-2019 football season. Heading Home Inc., is a non-profit that works to help end homelessness in the Greater Boston area. The partnership will also provide furnishings for a Boston-based family moving out of a shelter into their dream home during the holidays.


 “At Northern Bank we are New England fans, so we  are excited to be partnering with New England’s Sony Michel and 98.5 the Sports Hub radio network to help end homelessness in Boston,” said Jim Mawn, President and CEO of Northern Bank. “Since our founding in 1960, we believe that investing in our community is an integral part of our continued success as a privately-held, family-run, full-service bank.”


This holiday season, as part of Heading Home’s “Up and Out” move program, Northern Bank will surprise a Boston-based family moving out of a shelter into their first home.  Volunteers from Northern Bank will furnish their dream home, make it move in-ready and decorated for the holidays. The family will be brought to the house where they will be surprised by Sony Michel handing them the keys and welcoming them home.


Northern Bank is also donating $10 for every new personal checking account and $50 for every new business checking account opened through the end of the year* to Heading Home in support of their mission to end homelessness.
