50 Years of Philanthropy

The Needlers Foundation is a not-for-profit philanthropic organization, which contributes exclusively to children’s charities. We were founded approximately 50 years ago by a group of garment center executives to benefit children in need. The Needlers primary goal is raising funds and bringing awareness to benefit pediatric neurosurgery and to help sick and underprivileged children.


Today, our membership includes those in allied industries as well as lawyers, CPAs, bankers, doctors and health care professionals who have helped raise millions of dollars for children’s charities.
