Helping both Needham Families and a Local Business

Open your Holiday Hearts to families of Needham during this Season.

With your support the NCC can help every income-eligible household in Needham receive gifts during the Holidays, providing families in our program with gift cards to local businesses. Families will have the joy of shopping for holiday presents while supporting our community... a WIN - WIN. No matter how they celebrate, our goal is to bring a smile to all our neighbors.

Donations can be made at Make a Family's Holiday Special

Volunteer Ideas and Opportunities 


As part of its National Day of Service, the Exchange Club painted the baseball dugouts at Mills Field as part of its National Day of Service. The two day project consisted of cleaning, sanding and painting the dugouts and portions of the fencing.

The Exchange Club of Needham has been a service organization in the community for 75 years. The National Day of Service is part of the National Exchange Club’s program.

Seventy-Five years ago, Needham residents established The Exchange Club of Needham. The stated purpose was to exemplify the real meaning of "Unity for Service."

The Club’s women and men are proud of the 75 years of service they have provided to Needham. As most Needhamites know, the Exchange Club raises all of the money and provides all of the events for Needham’s 4th of July including the fireworks and parade. Town government helps in many ways, but the Club carries virtually all the costs.

Over the years the club has made many improvements to the Town, including construction of the gazebo, the tot lots at DeFazio and Claxton Fields, repair of park benches throughout the town, and clean up of school playgrounds and green space as well as work on the trails in the Town Forest, to name just a few.

Who is the Needham Exchange Club?

The Needham Exchange Club meets on the first and the third Thursday of the month, September through June.  Meetings include socializing, dinner and a speaker on a topic of general interest.

Membership in the Needham Exchange Club is open to anyone with an interest both in Needham and community service.
