Front Steps Project Halloween Fundraiser

Do you agree that Halloween *is* the most FUN holiday? We do, and we deserve a lot of FUN this year.

On Saturday, October 31, Needham photographers will donate their time to capturing fun and casual images of Needham residents in their Halloween costumes. If you’re dressing a little early or planning to make this year's Halloween one to remember, let’s get it on camera!

We’ll swing by in the afternoon and get a great shot of your crew on your front steps or yard (yes, from afar and with masks!). Your image will arrive via email within the next few days.

In true #TheFrontStepsProject spirit, this is a FUNDRAISER! Anyone who signs-up agrees to donate to the Needham Community Council's annual Holiday Hearts Program.
