Freihofer’s Bread Awards Playground

September 3, 2010

Woodrow Wilson School in Framingham has won the 1st Annual Freihofer’s Pride of the Neighborhood Sweepstakes. The official ribbon cutting ceremony and park dedication will take place on Sept 17th, 2010 (with rain date on 9/24). The community is invited to come out and enjoy refreshments.

The contest, which was promoted on 105.7-FM WROR, took place from January to April 2010. Schools were encouraged to register to win by logging on to and telling us why their community was the most deserving of a brand new playground. More than 153 people entered for a chance to win a brand new playground for their community.

“When I entered the sweepstakes, I didn’t even think there was the slightest chance we would win, so I am absolutely thrilled that Woodrow Wilson won and that we can finally upgrade parts of our playground to meet code and to make the grounds look nice and friendly,” said Anita Chaves, a teacher at Woodrow Wilson School Framingham. “Thank you so much for your generosity!”

“Since 1913, Freihofer’s Baking Company has worked to bring our community delicious healthy baked goods, making Freihofer’s the Pride of the Neighborhood,” said John Schaefer, Director of Sales, at Freihofer’s Bread.  “This year, we are excited to recognize Woodrow Wilson Elementary School as the winners of the Pride of the Neighborhood contest and present the school with a new playground. We hope the playground will allow families and friends of this community to come together in the same way that Freihofer’s has brought families and friends together for generations.”
