The Godmothers of Timothy Murphy School

St. Vincent’s Mission: To meet the special education needs of St. Vincent’s residents and day students within the Marin Community with serious, academic, emotional and behavioral challenges, with a structured educational program and nurturing environment which addresses the academic, behavioral and community life skills of our students.

The Godmothers of Timothy Murphy School at St. Vincent’s actively support the boys by fund raising and volunteering to help provide a safe, nurturing environment where the boys can build self-esteem, improve social skills, and renew trust.

My sister is a Godmother.  We volunteered at Timothy Murphy School this week to help assemble prize baskets for their Annual Aloha Bingo.  The Godmothers are over 200 strong and we joined a group of about 30 dedicated bingo volunteers to help make the lives of the boys better.

These women know how to play bingo, they plan to raise between $30,000 and $40,000 dollars for the school at this event alone.
Through fundraising and donations, The Godmother’s provide the Timothy Murphy School extras like 2 vans, computer lab, a merit program and store …  you can visit their website at and learn more, or, if the spirit moves you, donate.

  The Godmothers of Timothy Murphy School honor their Mothers by taking care of kids left behind.  It was my honor to help out for a day.

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and all the Moms of the world.
