Thursday, February 16, 2017
Legacy Senior Living, management company of senior living communities, announced the launch of “Legacy Cares Fund”. This charitable fund, an IRS approved 501(c)3, is designed to provide emergency assistance to employees facing a crisis.
Legacy Cares Fund will provide crisis assistance for medical or funeral expenses, temporary housing or basic necessities for those facing financial challenges due to unexpected emergencies. It will also provide support to elderly persons in need of clothing, food or other basic necessities.
“The Legacy Cares philosophy means that we are all a part of something bigger than ourselves. Whether someone makes a financial contribution or donates their time and talents, everything helps. We want the Legacy Cares Fund to be all about ‘people helping people’,” said Barry Ray, president of Legacy Senior Living.
“We will raise money for the Legacy Cares Fund by hosting community fundraisers, offering a payroll deduction option for employees, and by accepting donations from anyone willing to give. Big or small, all donations will make a difference in the lives of our fellow associates,” said Bryan Cook, COO of Legacy Senior Living.
“We have envisioned something like this for many years, and are excited that the time has finally come for us to serve our employees in a greater way. We understand the hardships of unexpected tragedies and we hope that we can be a blessing to these employees in times of need,” Mr. Ray said.
