Employees Show Their Generosity
One homecare employee learned of a single mother with two kids in need through her church. The Graceworks at Home employees agreed to pitch in and adopt the family. The plan was to adopt just one family this year, but the executive director of Jeremiah’s Letter, a Dayton-based nonprofit that helps with emergency food assistance and other needs through St. Paul Lutheran Church, reached out to Graceworks and requested help for a family of seven. The couple has five children, ranging in age from 20 months to 12 years old and lives on $800 – $1,000 per month of income.
A Graceworks at Home employee researched grant opportunities and successfully secured funds to help purchase gifts. Employees also donated their own money and gift cards to buy items for both families.
On Friday, December 18th, the Graceworks at Home employees gathered for a merry day of gift wrapping before delivering the precious packages.
Bethany Village nurses, RCTs and other staff also supported worthy causes around town this holiday season. Employees collected donations for the House of Bread, a Dayton charity that provides a hot lunchtime meal for anyone in need, every day of the year.
Employees also collected new and gently used clothes and toys for Hannah’s Treasure Chest, a local charity that helps families in need by partnering with other social service agencies in Montgomery, Butler, Greene and Warren Counties.
We are thankful for the generosity of our Graceworks employees and their commitment to providing Faithful Caring to the community.
