Tallgrass Creek Staff Appreciation Fund

Residents of Tallgrass Creek, an Erickson Senior Living community located in Overland Park, Kansas, recently made the holiday season a bit merrier for the community's staff by generously contributing more than $152,836 to the 2021 Staff Appreciation Fund.

The annual Staff Appreciation campaign is an opportunity for Tallgrass Creek 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, Tallgrass Creek residents make contributions to the Fund. Each holiday season, the funds are then distributed among Tallgrass Creek’s eligible employees, which include dining associates, security officers, maintenance workers, housekeepers, and medical and nursing assistants—just to name a handful.

The resident-organized philanthropy committee worked collaboratively with Tallgrass Creek’s Philanthropy and Human Resources departments to make this year’s celebration an extra special one for staff members.

On December 6, members of the Resident Life and Philanthropy Committees had the opportunity to express appreciation directly to staff members, on behalf of all Tallgrass Creek residents, as they distributed the gifts along with holiday cookies to eligible employees.

A total of 285 employees were celebrated and received a distribution from the Fund this year.

“I want to thank our residents for their generosity and for recognizing Tallgrass Creek’s dedicated employees,” said Executive Director Jean Landreville. “The Staff Appreciation Fund is a wonderful opportunity for residents to give a gift to the employees who mean so much to them. Our employees do so much to make residents’ lives more enjoyable and ensure their health and safety.”
