The following is a letter to the editor from the Taxation Aid/Property Tax Assistance Committee:
On behalf of the elderly and disabled, we'd like to extend our thanks to those who have donated to Needham's Elderly and Disabled Taxation Fund. This fund provides qualified low-income Needham seniors with assistance paying their property tax bills. With your donations, we've granted $135,850 in 318 separate grants over the past 8 years to 178 households. Thank you!
