Needham Honors Jean Higgins

Aired February 2, 2023.
The 2023 recipient of the Patrick and Patricia Forde Good Person Memorial Award is Jean Higgins for her work with Be Kind Needham.

Each year, the Needham Youth and Family Services department organizes and hosts the Patrick and Patricia Forde Good Person Award. It is their way to call attention to those who give a lot, without expecting anything in return. This year’s honoree has had an incredible impact, starting with founding a Facebook campaign aimed at helping out those in need right here in the Needham community.
