2015 CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars Phone-a-Thon
The Dollars For Scholars phone-a-thon this past weekend was a great success. One hundred sixteen BHS students participated in the scholarship fund drive at MITRE. They received 970 pledges amounting to $38,280. Those households that could not be reached will receive letters requesting a donation so that total contributions are expected to exceed $50,000 for the 5th consecutive year.
CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars extends a most grateful thank you to our wonderful Bedford Community, MITRE Corporation and all the student volunteers who helped to make the 2015 annual CSF Dollars for Scholars Phone-a-thon a tremendous success.
