Recent Events


There was a small event to launch the new Rite Aid KidCents program from 9:30 – 10:30 on September 19th at the Rite Aid store at 107 Main Street in Greenfield.

A $10,000 check was presented to DIAL/SELF Youth & Community Services as the first local charity to take part in the KidCents program.

The KidsCents Program allows participants to round up the pennies on their in store purchases to be donated to charity. For every $500 raised in this way, Rite Aid will match it with another $500.


Thanks for cheering us on as we marched in the Franklin County Fair parade on September 4th.

Every county should be offering the kind of programs, to teens (11-21) that DIAL/SELF offers: Affordable housing for teens in need and emergency housing for teens in distress - many, many on-going education and mentoring programs that teach teens  'How to live and work on your own' skills - counseling - support - with many individual sites throughout Franklin County, I recently took the DIAL/SELF "virtual tour" with Phil and David and I was amazed to learn that:  There is only one DIAL/SELF and that it is unique to Franklin County. We are all so lucky to have DIAL/SELF programs for "teens in need" in Greenfield"
