    10 years, 10,000 pounds

    Thank you to our wonderful community for helping make our 10th Annual Candy Drive a huge success. Every year, the drive grows in size and scope. What started as a small candy buy back with a handful of local kids has grown into an endeavor that spans the Metrowest: this year, we have 41 number of schools participating, along with numerous businesses and organizations. Best of all, we have collected more candy than ever before: we have shattered a record of nearly 10,000 pounds of candy. To be exact, if anyone is curious, we collected 9,883.3 pounds of candy. I’m sure everyone is wondering what we’re going to do with…

    7th Annual Candy Drive: Send the Sweet Message of Support to Our Troops!

    Halloween is right around the corner! For some, this is one of the most exciting holidays of the year, with its costume parties, spooky decorations, and of course, trick-or-treating! The kids, probably, love this holiday the most – the look forward to dressing up and collecting sweets door-to-door in the neighborhood. They do a great job and often collect quite a bounty they can’t possibly eat! Well, they will tell you otherwise, of course, but eating candy every day of the week does not benefit the health of their teeth. To save the pretty little smiles from cavities AND to teach the young ones lessons of sharing, encourage the children (and adults!)…
