Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Hale Education
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $25,000 to Hale Education. The grant will be used toward renovations and upgrades to the High Rock Cabin which hosts campers, students, and community groups. These key improvements will allow Hale Education to expand its partnerships with Boston Public Schools by reviving an underutilized area into a classroom for Hale Outdoor Learning Adventure. Renovations to this space will also help accommodate more students for their year-round programs and partnerships.
