Smiles of staff members at Devonshire and Chatsworth, located at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., are shining brighter than tinsel this holiday season, thanks to community members’ generous donations to the 2022 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF).
Each year, Devonshire and Chatsworth community members 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 Devonshire and Chatsworth’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, Devonshire and Chatsworth community members contributed $195,000 to the SAF and staff members are eager to share their gratitude.
At a holiday event on December 7 that decked the halls, residents had the opportunity to express their appreciation in person. Refreshments were served and employees signed a large thank you poster to show their appreciation.
The spirit of the tight-knit community, bolstered by this teamwork and community members’ desire to give back, doesn’t go unrecognized by Devonshire and Chatsworth’s leaders.
“At Devonshire and Chatsworth, we genuinely care for one another, and I think our community members’ generosity is a reflection of that,” says Human Resources Director, Julie Perry. “Our employees work hard to provide a true maintenance-free lifestyle, and residents realize how much better their lives are because of it.”
