On December 9th, DJWC had a successful fundraiser at Breakfast with Santa at the Dedham Community House. With the generosity of the families attending, we were able to raise $64. This money will be sent to Heifer International’s-Tanzania School Milk Project and the UN sponsored, Shot@Life. Thank you to all those who helped.
The International Committee thanks all who supported Heifer Project fundraiser https://heifer.org at the DJWC Craft Fair in fall 2018. We are especially grateful to the Dedham merchants who provided the prizes for the first and second place winners’ baskets: Caffé Tremezzo, El Centro, Blue Bunny, and the Dedham Square Coffeehouse.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Heifer International baskets. The correct number of animal crackers in the container was 478. First prize went to Cathy Rich of Dedham who guessed the number 472. Second prize went to Mary Sheehy of West Roxbury who guessed the number 489.
We greatly appreciate all those that participated and supported Heifer International’s Tanzania School Milk Project. https://www.heifer.org/join-the-conversation/magazine/2018/spring/milk-does-student-body-good.html. As a result of the community’s generosity $203 will be sent to Heifer International.
