“Every student benefits from an adult, especially a teacher, who cares about them and offers support and encouragement.  Access to a mentor, to enrichment opportunities, and to college and post-graduate options for some of our most vulnerable students can make all the difference. Thank you to the Needham community for generously supporting our students year after year".
