Smiles of staff members at Fox Run, the Erickson Senior Living-managed community in Novi, are shining brighter than tinsel this holiday season, thanks to residents’ generous donations to the 2022 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF).
Each year, residents of Fox Run 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. In 2022 alone, residents contributed more than $321,000 to the SAF.
The funds were then dispersed among 535 eligible employees, which include dining associates, security officers, maintenance workers, housekeepers, and medical and nursing assistants.
At a celebratory event held on December 6 that decked the halls, the checks were distributed as residents and employees enjoyed a special coffee and hot chocolate bar.
The spirit of the tight-knit community, bolstered by this teamwork and residents’ desire to give back, doesn’t go unrecognized by the leaders of Fox Run.
“At Fox Run, we genuinely care for one another, and I think our residents’ generosity is a reflection of that,” says Associate Executive Director Michael Wehrle. “Our employees work hard to provide a true maintenance-free lifestyle, and residents realize how much better their lives are because of it.”
