Mountain of Candy

Posted by on Nov 16, 2010 in Blogs | 0 comments


Wellesley Dental Group thanks YOU, the greater community, for making the 2010 Post-Halloween candy drive a huge success.  All of the candy has been donated to SKIP who will be making care packages for our overseas troops.

This drive could not have happened without the great efforts and help from many local schools, PTO members, students, and helpful community members.

A sincere “Thanks” goes out to:


  • Margaret Flitsch and Dr. Steven Goodwin and students from Sprague Elementary
  • Bernadette Dore and students from Bates Elementary
  • Maura Renzella and Hardy Elementary
  • Joanne from Schofield Elementary (she helped us construct the huge pile)
  • Jennifer Madden and Fiske Elementary
  • Kara Steinberg and the Hunnewell PTO
  • Upham Elementary parents and families


  • Chandana Gopal and Downey Elementary


  • Susan Roer and Charles River School
  • Kristin Brophy and Chickering Elementary


  • Tara Milligan and Needham Early Childhood Center
  • The Mitchell Elementary School

We’d also like to thank Bret Silverberg and Callum Borchers from the Wellesley Patch and Greg Abazorius from the Needham Patch.  Rachel from Wellesley Cable Access Corporation also was a super help in our drive. Thank you.

Pediatricians’ offices that helped spread the word made a huge difference.

Thank you to everyone who donated, separated, delivered and parted with their candy!

Thanks also to SKIP (Frank, Skip, and Family) for doing a great job sending the care packages out to the troops.

Drs. Ali & Ali and the entire Wellesley Dental Group team
