We are deeply saddened by the recent passing of our board member and staunchest supporter, Silvester "Sal" J Pomponi.  Sal and his wife Alma have chaired the highly successful annual Dollars for Scholars Phone-a-Thon fundraiser for over 40 years.  Their tireless efforts over the years have assisted thousands of high school graduates with the cost of higher education.  We will all miss him terribly.  May Sal rest in peace.


CSF of Bedford's Dollars for Scholars Phone-A-Thon a Ringing Success

The annual Phone-a-Thon of CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars contacted Bedford and Hanscom community residents who pledged over $39,000.

The MITRE Corporation, was the site of the telephone fund drive efforts of over 100 Bedford High School student callers over the March 2nd - 3 rd weekend.   Students who were recruited by Social Studies Department teachers worked in two-hour shifts. 

The money raised in the annual "Dollars for Scholars" Phone-a-thon is the principal source of funds for college scholarships awarded to graduating seniors by CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars.  This year's scholarships will be presented at a reception to be held at the Double Tree Hotel in Bedford on May 29, 2019.  "Dollars for Scholars" donations can be mailed to CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars, PO Box 585, Bedford, MA 01730-0585.
