To the Editor:

The staff, board, and families of Deep Root Center for Self-Directed Learning (DRC), a learning resource center in Canton, would like to extend our gratitude to all who contributed to the success of our “Feel the Heat” - Caribbean inspired fundraising dinner and silent auction, this past Thursday. Thank you to all of our guests for your generosity, as well as your investment and commitment to the DRC mission.
