We are writing with our most heartfelt thanks to all of the Dedham residents and businesses that contributed to the 2013 Toys for Dedham Tots drive to benefit the Dedham Youth Commission.

The event would not have been possible without sponsorship from Selectmen Michael Butler and Carmen Dello Iacono, as well as support from Chuck Dello Iacono and the Chuck Wagon. Thank you to Tracey White, Bobby Zahka and the congregation at St. John’s of Damascus, Adrienne Albani and the congregation at the Allin Church, and Dan Murphy and the American Legion. Also, thanks to Chris Carney and the team at American Waste/Dedham Transfer Station for your generous donation to finish the wish lists of kids throughout Dedham.

A very special thank you to Jack & Eric Linari (The Head Pirates), and their Pirate helpers: Georgia & Quinn Shumway, Lily Zahka, Brandon & Ryan Choi, Jack & Catherine Sargent, Aidan & Quinn Kelly, Mackenzie Briggs, & Steven Rumpp. Together, this band of future town leaders raised nearly $1,000 and shopped for toys for local children.

We are so grateful to everyone who made a donation this year. Thank you for your continued support!
