Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Community Builders’ Project at Franklin Park Community Corner
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $7,000 in support of The Community Builders’ new project at Franklin Park Community Corner. Funds will be used to update the Community Corner and develop a welcoming and inviting space where community members can receive needed supports. Renovations will help the space to fit in well with neighboring buildings, as well as make it easier to spot the entrance for those who need to find the Community Corner and all it has to offer.
