Smiles of staff members at Linden Ponds, an Erickson Senior Living community in Hingham, MA, are shining brighter than tinsel this holiday season, thanks to residents’ generous donations to the 2022 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF).
Each year, Linden Ponds 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 Linden Ponds’ 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, Linden Ponds residents contributed $352,466 to the SAF—a historic high—and staff members are eager to share their gratitude.
At a “red carpet” celebration on December 6 that decked the halls, residents had the opportunity to express their appreciation in person. Residents and staff enjoyed an afternoon of hot cocoa, gingerbread cookies, music and conversation.
The spirit of the tight-knit community, bolstered by this teamwork and residents’ desire to give back, doesn’t go unrecognized by Linden Ponds leaders.
“At Linden Ponds, we genuinely care for one another, and I think our residents’ generosity is a reflection of that,” says Philanthropy Manager, Lori Rohleder. “Our employees work hard to provide a true maintenance-free lifestyle, and residents realize how much better their lives are because of it.”
