We want the Legacy Cares Fund to be all about ‘people helping people’,” said Barry Ray, president of Legacy Senior Living.

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.
