A Thank You to Some of Our Many Superheroes

In the United States, April is National Volunteer Month which is a time to celebrate the remarkable ways volunteers lend a helping hand to organizations and people in need every day. While this would usually have been a time to recognize our amazing group of Concordia volunteers for their service and commitment to our residents, patients and family members, due to COVID-19, all of our scheduled volunteer appreciation celebrations have been temporarily put on hold.

However, we still want to take this time to say thank you. Thank you to our committed team of facility and home/community based volunteers who can’t be at our communities and offices right now – we can’t wait until we can see you again. Thank you to the many individuals, families, member churches and organizations who have generously donated PPE, supplies, food, gifts, signs of encouragement and so much more to our communities over the past few weeks.

Thank you to our amazing group of team members who have stepped up in so many ways to serve our residents and patients. Whether staying late to coordinate calls between residents and their family members, finding creative ways to engage our residents with exciting activities, taking extra time to grocery shop for our residents, being a source of encouragement and support to our residents and so much more, we appreciate your acts of kindness and dedication. We can’t say thank you to our superheroes enough for your support.
