Wayland Dads "Pay-it-forward"

We are kicking off the school year in partnership with two awesome community service organizations - Neighbor Brigade and Cradles to Crayons.

Wayland Dads is proud to support the "Bring Change" campaign. Moms, Dads and Kids bring your spare change to TD Bank's Penny Arcade to support the Wayland Neighbor Brigade and get a lollipop. This upcoming "Green Friday" TD will match up to $2,000 in coins counted and donate it to Neighbor Brigade.

Friday, Sept. 11 - Coin Counting @ TD Bank Main Street Wayland from 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
