Letter to the Editor: Thanks for Toys for Tots
Organizers of the 2010 drive for Toys for Tots thank those who donated and helped so many kids during the holidays.
We are writing with our most heartfelt thanks to all of the Dedham residents and businesses that contributed to the 2010 Toys for Tots drive to benefit the Dedham Youth Commission/Dedham Housing Authority, the Italian Home for Children and Childrens Hospital Boston.
The need was great this year, but so was the response! The event would not have been possible without in-kind donations or sponsorship from selectmen Carmen Dello Iacono and Mike Butler, Chuck Dello Iacono and the Chuck Wagon and Bob Stanley.
Special thanks also go to American Legion Post #18, state Rep. Paul McMurtry, the Dedham Recreation Department and Tracy White, Bobby Zahka (and Lily our little helper) for their support.
We are so grateful to these friends for their donations: Col. Robert Black & Family, Shiela Bennette, Marie Louise Kehoe, Maher Family, Flanagan Family, Webster Family, Amy & Steven Black, Cheryl Schoenfeld & Family, Jay Donahue, Russ Poole, Leann Jasset, Chief Michael d'Entremont, Wardles Pharmacy, Labadini Family, Heffernan Family, McLeish Family, Briggs Family, Powers Family, Charlie Black & Family, Rita Mae Cushman, Brian Keaney, Sue Wons, Coughlin Family, Linari Family, Lyons Family, Quinn Family, Rich Dello Iacono, Cory and the gang at Allin Church, Wingmen/238, Nancy Baker and Salon 561.
Our apologies to anyone we may have forgotten, and we truly appreciate your generosity!
