Samuel Johnson, considered the ‘most distinguished man of letters in English history’, said that “happiness is a futile pursuit, it can’t be found.” But I saw joy on the faces of our nannies last Saturday as they brought their gifts for Maggie’s Place on
National Nanny Training Day. A few days later, I felt equally joyful as I delivered all these generous gifts. Mandy’s House gets no government support and relies solely on the generosity of people like you! In the top photo, the girl on the right lives here six days a week and is an Americorps Volunteer. She’s been there nearly a year. The lady on the left is a volunteer who comes in a few days per week to help and she was holding one of the triplets when I arrived.
There are five young Moms here and seven babies, including one month old triplets! Mandy’s Place gets referrals from homeless shelters and the young moms can remain in this lovely three level Tempe home as long as needed.
Thanks to all of you for your big hearts and generosity! Together you showed these young Moms how valuable they are! Together we made a difference!
