Community Foundation Supports Together Yes
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $3,550 to Together Yes. The grant will be used to fund various expenses, including fence repairs at the facility, equipment repairs, programming support, and more. The individuals pictured are wearing scarves that volunteers made by hand for homeless people in the Norwood community. “Together Yes is grateful for Dedham Savings Community Foundation’s grant to help our work in promoting sustainability, including both environmental and social aspects. Our Sewstainability charitable work party this year was held to make as many heavy-duty and weather resistant scarves as we could in one day–to donate to a nearby shelter. We periodically make these scarves, as there is such need among the homeless,” said volunteer Susan Clare.
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation was formed by Dedham Savings for the purpose of funding requests from community organizations which provide services to the communities that they serve. These communities generally, but not exclusively, include Dedham, Needham, Norwood, Sharon, South Boston, Walpole, and Westwood. Typical requests are usually received from such organizations as schools, libraries, family service organizations and non-profit organizations. The Trustees of the Foundation will accept grant requests from community organizations and make awards twice a year.
Organizations wishing to request funding from the Foundation may contact The Dedham Savings Community Foundation, 55 Elm Street, Dedham, MA 02026 or call (781) 329-6700 to obtain a grant application.
