Letter to the Editor, November 23, 2016: Thank You from the 2016John Dodge Coat Drive

Submitted by Margaret Donovan

Letter-to-the-EditorOn behalf of my mother Connie Donovan Dodge, stepbrother Nick Stavropoulos, sidekick Richard Hughes, and the rest of John Dodge’s family we want to thank Bedford residents for your wholehearted response to the annual Dodge Coat Drive to benefit St. Francis House Shelter in Boston.

Nick promised John that he would keep the tradition going and the first John B. Dodge Memorial Coat Drive was a tremendous success. The shelter van was crammed with 50 bags of coats and warm clothing to share with those who, as John would always say, are down on their luck.

All of us are grateful to the community for their generosity, and to the Bedford Funeral Home for its hospitality in hosting the Coat Drive.
