    MAHA Receives $50,000 Grant as Part of Arbella Insurance Foundation’s “50 to 25” Program

    Program celebrates Arbella Insurance Group’s 25th anniversary by giving back to the communities it serves

    Quincy, MA, September 11, 2013 – The Arbella Insurance Foundation has awarded a grant of $50,000 to MAHA as part of its “50 to 25” program, which presented one-time grants of $50,000 to 25 local charities throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut. “50 to 25” was created in recognition of the Arbella Insurance Group’s 25th anniversary and the important role the Foundation plays in supporting the communities Arbella serves.

    The Foundation’s Selection Committee chose the 25 recipient charities from proposals thoughtfully submitted by Arbella employees, independent insurance agents and longtime charitable partners. Checks were presented to the selected charities at a celebratory luncheon in Quincy on September 10th. The selected charities are involved in social services, health and/or education.

    Mayoral Candidates to Address MAHA First Time Homebuyer Class

    September 3, 2013 - Three weeks from today, Boston voters will select two finalists in the first open Mayoral contest in 20 years. And tonight, three of the candidates for that position will visit a MAHA first time homebuyer class to share their homebuying stories.

    MAHA invited all 12 candidates for Mayor to attend one of our four upcoming classes on either September 3rd, 4th, 10th or 11th. The candidates were asked to address three topics - why home seekers should buy a home in Boston under their administration; share their personal home buying story; and indicate whether they would require banks to offer the most affordable mortgages in order to gain access to city-funded downpayment assistance programs.

    Leading off tonight will be City Councilors Rob Consalvo, Felix Arroyo, and John Connolly. District Attorney Dan Conley is scheduled for Tuesday the 10th and Charlotte Golar Richie is confirmed for the 11th.
