Smiles of staff members at Brooksby Village, an Erickson Senior Living community in Peabody, MA, are shining brighter than tinsel this holiday season, thanks to residents’ generous donations to the 2022 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF).
Each year, Brooksby Village residents donate to the SAF as a way of recognizing the community’s hourly employees, who work diligently to provide them an industry-leading level of service.
The funds are then dispersed among Brooksby Village’s eligible employees, which include dining associates, security officers, maintenance workers, housekeepers, and medical and nursing assistants—all of whom are more than merry year-round.
In 2022 alone, Brooksby Village residents contributed $222,232 to the SAF and staff members are eager to share their gratitude.
At a “red carpet” event on December 6 that decked the halls, residents had the opportunity to express their appreciation in person. Members of our Resident Advisory Council helped to hand out checks in the early morning and afternoon sessions as we celebrated with music and food. Brooksby Village residents joined in to cheer on the many dedicated staff that stopped by to enjoy the day.
The spirit of the tight-knit community, bolstered by this teamwork and residents’ desire to give back, doesn’t go unrecognized by Brooksby Village’s leaders.
“At Brooksby Village, we genuinely care for one another, and I think our residents’ generosity is a reflection of that,” says Philanthropy Manager, Hope Moore. “Our employees work hard to provide a true maintenance-free lifestyle, and residents realize how much better their lives are because of it.”
