The Needham Channel

Your Town…Your Neighbors…Your Television!

Good People!


One of the highlight event of our year occurs right at the beginning of it. There are many worthwhile contenders, of course, but when it comes to just feeling good about life in Needham, it is hard to beat the Needham Youth and Family Services “Patrick and Patricia Forde Good Person Memorial Award”. The tales of giving and public service are inspiration enough to make it one of our favorite’s to cover. This year’s recipient made quite an impact!

Lisa Tedeschi Vergara was recognized for her work with Storytime Crafts, which brings books and other essentials to youth in the area. Check out our story–after all, who couldn’t use a little “good” news?
