Rotary Club Helps Framingham Couple With Needed Home Repairs

FRAMINGHAM – Jim Goodreau and his wife, Christine, were in dire need of a helping hand, and quickly.

Jim is recovering from cardiac arrest – Christine gave him CPR until the EMTs arrived – and couldn’t risk the exertion needed to repair the un-lockable front door or the damaged storm door in their Landseer Avenue home. Plus, the dishwasher wouldn’t work.

Unfortunately, the couple couldn’t pay for the needed repairs because Christine had just lost her job.

So, with limited income now – one daughter is still in high school, and the other is at college – the Goodreau family badly needed the assistance that Rotary Club of Framingham has supplied.

The Club helped the couple through its Random Acts of Kindness program.


Rotary and the Goodreaus expressed their gratitude for the assistance
of Framingham-based Belcher’s Appliance, Inc. and Tri State Appliance Installation, Inc. of Lincoln, RI, in the acquisition and installation of the new dishwasher. 

This Random Acts of Kindness award was made possible by the gift of an anonymous Framingham Rotarian.
