2017 Sponsorship  Opportunities
  
We would like to invite you to join us in supporting the St. Joseph Parish & Schools’ Christmas Express Ride to the “North Pole” on December 3, 2017.
The Christmas Express has been a beloved event for families in the community for years. After a five year hiatus, and in conjunction with the St. Joseph Parish’s Centennial Celebration, we are excited to bring this joyful holiday ride back to a new group of believers. St. Joseph Schools are extraordinary institutions educating nearly 600 students from Needham and the surrounding communities. With the generosity of businesses, organizations and institutions like yours, funds raised through the Christmas Express will fund innovative and engaging programs for St. Joseph Elementary School and Monsignor Haddad Middle School students.
