As part of this year’s 50th celebration of Fellowship Days, we have the wonderful opportunity to honor and care for others by giving to support the Caring Fund through Fill the Gap. While residents and families will gather for fun and fellowship, some residents on campus are more concerned about affording their care than the planned activities. They need your help. Your gift to Fill the Gap provides the same quality of care for each resident without distinction between those with and without financial resources.
As we gather to enjoy fun times, there are residents on campus who are more concerned about affording their care than the planned activities. Will you help a resident with a Fill the Gap gift? Read Evelyn’s story below to learn why your gift is so important.
