CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars held their annual Phone-a-thon on March 3 and 4 and reached an important a milestone: Donations received from the town from this annual event have now exceeded one million dollars since the program began. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of our generous supporters.
Bedford residents pledged a total of $32,000 for college scholarships to the 87 energetic Bedford High School student callers. Residents who were not at home for a phone call received a solicitation letter. It is anticipated that the amount that will be received for Bedford’s graduating high school seniors will exceed $50,000 for the 8th consecutive year.
