The Wellesley Dental Group would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Community Candy Drive. When we started this candy drive four years ago, we started small. It was only about keeping cavities away. Now, the candy drive has taken a life of its own! With your help, this year, we collected 2,500 lbs of candy!

This year’s participating schools and organizations include:
Downey School of Westwood
Charles River School of Dover
Chickering School of Dover
Wellesley Health Department
The Newcomer’s Club of Wellesley

*A special thank you to Dr. Goodwin from Sprague School and Mr. Ieong from Bates School for bringing their students to the drop-off event.
The candy was delivered to CarePacks, a non-profit organization who is shipping to troops stationed overseas. Even sweeter than the candy, the troops will love all of the hand-written notes and cards from the community’s children.
Thank you to all of the schools, organizations, and individuals who participated! We couldn’t have done it without you! We hope to see you all again next year!
