Wellesley's Back to School Drive

July 12th, 2013

Wellesley Dental Group is joining hands with Cradles to Crayons for their ‘Ready For School Drive.’ Let's help make the first day of school an exciting endeavor for the children in need. It can be a source of anxiety for kids not having the appropriate school items, and ultimately not fitting in with their peers. Our goal is to raise $5000 from our community efforts so that in-need children can have all the school essentials prior to starting classes. We want every child to feel prepared and confident when school starts and together we can make that happen. Cradles to Crayons *Ready for School* program focuses on distributing the school essentials children deserve and need to arrive at school ready. Their “KidPacks”are filled with clothing, shoes, books, and a brand new backpacks. Every dollar makes a difference and with our community’s help we can reach our goal.

Wellesley Dental Group is asking the community to join hands in our fundraising efforts for Cradles to Crayons. To show our appreciation, we will give you a credit towards our state-of-the-art whitening services in the amount matching to your donation.

Wellesley Dental Group is a permanent drop-off location for Cradles to Crayons.

Please Donate generously; the smile you give to others shines back on you.

Thank you for your support! Cradles to Crayons is a registered 501 (c)(3) charity and the full amount of your donation is tax deductible.

WMF Truck Day and Baby Food Drive benefitting the Massachusetts Children's Fund


Postponed to Saturday, May 15th, 9:30  am to 12:30 pm


Sprague School parking lot, 401 School St, Wellesley

If you cannot make the event, Wellesley Dental Group is accepting donations and will bring them to the event. Our address is 5 Seaward Road, Wellesley - we're open 8 to 5 Mon - Thursday, and on Friday, 9 am to 1 pm. THANK YOU!

Come see some of your children's favorite trucks and make a difference in the lives of hungry children through the state at the same time!  Last year the WMF raised almost $2,500 and collected over 3,000 jars of baby food and cans of formula.  We hope you'll join us again this year!  Simply bring $5 per child for admission and any unopened baby food or formula you'd like to donate to the event.  All proceeds from the event go directly to the Massachusetts Children's Fund.  This is the perfect way to teach your children the value of giving back to the larger community at an event set up just for them.   Last year they had fifteen different kinds of vehicles -- ranging from fire trucks to construction trucks to police cars to limousines to ambulances to bookmobiles -- this year they're expecting even more!

The Massachusetts Children's Fund is a non-profit organization devoted to the sole purpose of providing baby food and supplies to children in Massachusetts.  Over 100,000 families with children -- many with infants -- sought food assistance last year alone.  You can make a difference by taking part in our event and getting the entire family involved!  For more information on the Massachusetts Children's Fund, visit their website at

Thanks in advance for your generosity and participation in what we hope will be a fun-filled and memorable time for all!  Please spread the word to your friends and family and bring them with you.  This event is open to all!

Please contact Joanna Bandte, WMF Special Programs Coordinator, with any questions about the event at or 617-821-1889.
