Linden Ponds Residents Contribute $351,227 to Hourly Staff for a Job Well Done

December 10, 2021

Hingham, MA -- Residents of Linden Ponds, an Erickson Senior Living community located in Hingham, MA, recently made the holiday season a bit merrier for the community's staff by generously contributing more than $351,227 to the 2021 Staff Appreciation Fund.

The annual Staff Appreciation campaign is an opportunity for Linden Ponds residents to thank the hourly employees who consistently go above and beyond to provide a variety of services that enhance the daily lives of residents.

Throughout the year, Linden Ponds residents make personal gifts to the Fund and also contribute via fundraising efforts such as the Linden Ponds Spelling Bee. Each holiday season, the funds are then distributed among Linden Ponds’ eligible employees, which include dining associates, security officers, maintenance workers, housekeepers, and medical and nursing assistants—just to name a handful.

At a festive holiday event on December 7, residents had the opportunity to express their appreciation directly by handing the employees a special gift. 

More than 500 employees were celebrated and received a distribution from the Fund this year.

“The Staff Appreciation Fund is a great opportunity for residents to say thank you to the employees who mean so much to them,” said Executive Director Jim Centola.  “We can’t thank our residents enough for their generosity and for recognizing Linden Ponds’ dedicated employees.”
