GERRY – Heritage Ministries is getting ready to take part in ‘Giving Tuesday’ this week.
Every year on Giving Tuesday, millions of people across the globe mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities by supporting their local not-for-profit organizations. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.
Founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday has inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in.
“We are so blessed by the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from our communities,” Lisa Haglund, Heritage President and CEO shared, “Like all of our holiday plans for this year, Giving Tuesday is all about bringing the joy and magic of the holidays to our residents.”
“The seniors that we serve deserve the very best from us during this difficult time, and our teams have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to provide for our residents as we continue to promote the Heritage mission of promoting Hope, Dignity, and Purposeful Living to all those entrusted to our care,” furthered Haglund. “With the approach of the holidays, they are developing new and innovative ways for our residents to partake in some of the traditional activities they enjoy during what has been a very unprecedented and untraditional year. By donating on Giving Tuesday, friends of our Heritage communities, nationwide, will enable Heritage to provide additional resources that help our residents thrive in a loving and caring environment this holiday season.”
Giving Tuesday donations will benefit all of Heritage’s residents nationwide, including The Green, (Greenhurst, NY), The Park, (Jamestown, NY), The Village, (Gerry, NY), The Homestead, (Gerry, NY), Orchard Grove and The Woodlands, (West Ellicott, NY), Vinecroft Retirement Community (Clarence Center, NY), Ives Hill Retirement Community, (Watertown, NY), Rolling Fields Elder Care Community (Conneautville, PA), Hearthstone Communities (Woodstock, IL), and The Kenney (West Seattle, WA).
