On Saturday, MANNAM Volunteers went to play Bingo at Goddard House like we do every month. However, as we were wheeling residents from their rooms down to the dining room, we noticed many of our regular Bingo champions were nowhere to be seen. Edie and Sangina, the two amazing young ladies who run the activities program on Saturdays and work there during the week, told us the sad news that Goddard House will be closing by September 8 this year.
We have had such a wonderful time getting to know all the wonderful staff and residents at Goddard House, and are very sad to hear about their closing. MANNAM-Boston wishes all the residents a safe and easy transition to their new homes, and for all the full-time and part-time staff we wish a quick and fruitful job hunt. We are planning to volunteer at Goddard House one more time before they close.
Thank you for teaching us how valuable and rewarding it is to give of your time and what it means to truly serve, and for allowing us the opportunity to become part of your family of residents and staff at Goddard House.
With all our love,
