Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Julie’s Family Learning Center
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $9,500 to Julie’s Family Learning Center in South Boston. The grant funds will be used to purchase appliances and technology equipment crucial to the center’s operations, educational and developmental programs.
Major kitchen appliance upgrades for the teaching kitchen and food service programs will benefit the center’s nutrition education and meals programs. Grant funds will help finance equipment purchases like new, specialized cribs for the center’s Children’s Services Program; smart board and digital white boards to support remote learning in the Adult Basic Education Student Program; and Family Development classrooms.
