- Christmas Eve Visits from Santa
Needham Santa is continuing a forty year old tradition here in Needham; started and run by The Needham Women's Club until 2016. On Christmas eve, Santa Claus visits families in their homes and brings a small gift for them to unwrap. After a few pictures, Santa tells the children to get a good night sleep and heads off to the North Pole to get ready for his big night. This has been a custom cherished by hundreds of families over multiple generations.
Our Santa visits are also visiting families in need. We raise money through donations and our other programs to purchase gifts for families who may not otherwise be able to afford them. Last Christmas our program had Santa purchase and deliver gifts to over 40 children in a magical Christmas Eve experience.
