Holiday Hearts Program:
Open your Holiday Hearts to Needham families during this Season. With your support we can help every income-eligible family in Needham receive gifts during the Holidays. We will be providing gift certificates to local stores so they can purchase presents. No matter how they celebrate, our goal is to bring a smile to all our neighbors.
The program directly supports local businesses, Learning Express, Michelson’s and TJMaxx Companies. Our families will receive age appropriate gifts certificates so they can purchase presents for each family member – it’s a WIN-WIN for local businesses and households!
Click here to make an online donation or visit Learning Express or Michelson’s to purchase a “heart”.
As we navigate these unprecedented times we are planning how to re-open our programs to keep our customers, volunteers and staff safe and healthy. Every week we are making changes that will keep our customers supported and continue the programs we can safely provide.
