Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Manor Neighborhood Association
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $10,000 to Manor Neighborhood Association. This grant will be used toward building an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible playground in Dedham. The playground will serve children with special needs in the neighborhood, as well as the greater community and will incorporate natural vegetation, trees, and a boardwalk.
