Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Bay State Learning Center
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $10,000 to the Bay State Learning Center in Dedham. This grant will be used to replace computers and laptops as well as repair workspace damage caused by a recent flood. The funding is critical to help rebuild classrooms and provide the necessary technology for students to access a wide range of classes and workshops.
