Happy Birthday to You


We wish a Happy Birthday to the following student who is celebrating his birthday this week at the Deerfield School:


Cooper Jurado


Holiday Drive for Children in Need (flyer)

The following message is about a Halloween Drive for children in need:

Hi Everyone,
As you are probably aware by now, our family began a Halloween Drive for children in need when our oldest Kyle, now a freshman at Bentley, was in first grade and our two little girls were following every other year behind him. That year, we collected 25 costumes.


We are so happy to report with your help, together we have all helped over 10,000 children in need thus far. We could never have touched so many lives without the generous support from our community and for that we are so grateful. The sad reality is there are still so many other children who are counting on us. We are writing to ask for your help please.


Last week, we placed orange bins at each of the Westwood Public Schools. The bins will be in the schools until October 26th. While we have most likely received all gently used costumes in our town, there are still so many children who will not celebrate Halloween without our help each year. Please look for gently used costumes or please consider purchasing a new costume to help other children in need, when out doing errands.


Please understand we are extremely grateful for all of your support. On behalf of the children who are literally moved to tears upon receiving these costumes, we thank you so much.


With love and appreciation,
The Ouellette Family
Fred, Joanne, Kyle, Gabrielle and Bianca
