'Tis the season for cookies, cocoa, cheer—and recognizing hourly team members who go above and beyond for residents at Greenspring, the Erickson Senior Living community in Springfield, Virginia, every day!
The 2023 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF), made possible through generous donations from warm-hearted residents, will be dispersed among eligible employees to thank them for providing industry-leading services that enhance the community's vibrant, engaging, and worry-free lifestyle.
This year alone, Greenspring residents contributed $379,398 to the SAF, plus an additional $20,000 from a resident legacy estate gift, bringing the total for distribution to 399,398.
"Our team members show up every day with welcoming smiles on their faces, and that doesn't go unnoticed by residents," says Executive Director Melissa Robson. "It's their positive energy, in addition to their hard work, that helps residents thrive."
At Greenspring's Staff Appreciation celebration on December 5, team members enjoyed ice cream novelties, a hot fresh donut truck, a photo booth, music by the Surf Jaguars Band, and the opportunity to thank residents for the gift. In addition, all hourly staff who attended the event were entered into a raffle to win an iPad.
A total of 860 employees were celebrated and received a distribution from the Fund this year.
