Love Local - Support Our Restaurants and Our Community

Love Local: Support our restaurants


As we continue through another challenging winter – the Charles River Regional Chamber Dining Collaborative is launching a second annual campaign to support our restaurant community in Newton, Needham, Watertown and Wellesley.

Our “Love Local: Support our Restaurants” campaign starts Feb. 1. While Valentine’s Day may be a traditional day to dine out ---we’ll be highlighting the many ways to “Love Local” all month long and asking for support of all of our members and community partners to join this effort during this short, cold month when our restaurants could use a little bit of a boost.

We're asking for your help to support this campaign and to help spread the word!  We’ve created ready-to-use graphics for social media, email campaigns or the print at this site. Download and use as is, or customize to your brand/ business.

Love Local: Support our community


As part of the “Love Local” campaign this year the Dining Collaborative is organizing a clothing drive to give back while visiting your favorite restaurants within our communities.

Collections will benefit Circle of Hope, a Needham-based nonprofit that provides homeless children, women, and men in Boston and Metro West with clothing and necessities.

We'll be collecting NEW sweatshirts, sweatpants and t-shirts at participating restaurant locations throughout all 4 communities throughout the month of Feb. You can also support the initiative by making an online donation or via the QR code at all collection sites.
