Mary Romano got laid off at ABCD in the North End last week. She has worked there tiredlessly for around 20 years or more.
She worked to help many seniors with Fuel Assistance, food stamps cooked lunches for them, ran trips and held parties at each holiday. She had special parties for those turning 90 years old and made it special for them.
It is very unfair that she was let go. She was a very hard worker and helped many people in need. She was given only a couple days notice, pretty lousy for someone who gave her heart and sole to the agency, neighborhood and seniors.
If people want to express their unhappiness they can call John Drew at ABCD on Tremont Street at (617) 348-6000 and Lia Tota the Director at ABCD on Michelangelo Street in the North End at (617) 523-8125.
