People Doing Good in Frankford

Sometimes I have to look around for good stories to tell.  Often when I find something, the people involved just don’t realize that they are doing somethings special.  It’s that way with these two groups this Thanksgiving.

Jeanna Goodwin and her guys, of New Desires Recovery housing, have been making up Thanksgiving baskets for the last few years and distributing them to families in need.  They did it again this year.  With the help of the West Frankford Town Watch and the Frankford Civic Association they found some families who needed some help and visited them Tuesday night with a Thanksgiving gift.  I heard about it and thought you would like to know.
