As part of Old Navy’s commitment to making a difference in their local communities, the Dedham retail store team has donated the funds raised through their annual Easter Egg Hunt to Toward Independent Living and Learning, Inc. (TILL), a human service agency based in Dedham, MA.
The event featured an Easter Egg Hunt with face-painting, coloring and other fun activities throughout the day.
“We are thrilled that our Dedham neighbors have chosen to partner with us through their volunteer efforts. We appreciate not only the donation, but their energy and enthusiasm for their fundraiser and support of our mission.” commented Dafna Krouk-Gordon, Founder and President of TILL, Inc. Toward Independent Living and Learning, a not-for-profit human service agency, provides residential, clinical, family support services and day and vocational programs to meet the needs of individuals of all ages with acquired brain injuries, mental health issues, developmental disabilities, Asperger's Syndrome and those on the autism spectrum.
Michael Lemire, Old Navy Dedham’s Store Manager, explained that his team of associates chose TILL as the recipient of their fundraising and volunteer efforts and plan to continue their involvement, lending a hand at a fun event hosted by TILL’s Autism Support Center for children and their families. Lemire noted “Our staff and I are honored to be working with such a great local organization. We hope to continue the partnership in many ways in the future.”
