FALLS CHURCH, VA – On Thursday, December 10, the residents of Goodwin House, a senior living facility in Falls Church at Bailey’s Crossroads, gave thanks to the staff of essential workers with sounds of the holidays provided by the Capitol Carollers.

The carolers arrived in Dickensian costumes  as a trio and sang classic as well as beautiful newer arrangements of traditional Christmas carols, well-known winter favorites, and gems of Channukah pieces with gorgeous harmonies.

“This year’s hardships and sacrifices led to a greater appreciation for the dedication, compassion and selflessness of the  caregivers who support the health and wellbeing of our older adults every day. Thanks to the hard work of nurses and other essential workers, this vulnerable population was able to depend on them for their necessary care during this period of uncertainty and isolation,” says Goodwin House.
