Supplying Smiles to Local Care Facilities
Healthcare facilities are strongly affected by the limitations of COVID-19, which isolates many residents from family and friends. The SupplyHouse.com Giving Back Committee wanted to help put a smile on their face, so the team made tailor-made donations to the Ross Center for Health and Rehabilitation in New York City, The elms of Cranbury in NJ, St. Anne’s Group Home and South Meadows rest home in NV, en Sage Park Assisted Living and Memory Care in OH.
“For the first quarter, the Giving Back Committee focused its efforts on bringing joy to healthcare facilities around each of our locations,” said Anna Goldenbaum, Human Resources Representative. “We recognized the impact the pandemic had on this community, so we wanted to bring some relief … and a little bit of fun to residents in the communities we are a part of. The effects of isolation on well-being and mental health is very real, and we all have to do our part, ”she continued.
The donations include grooming kits that include toilet sets, socks, handmade knit hats, gift cards, art supplies, Amazon Fire tablets, puzzles, and board games.
“The goal of this initiative was to provide residents with all the necessities they need and help them stay in touch with loved ones through the use of the tablets,” said Carrie Wodhanil, a member of the Giving Back Committee. “We learned that residents love crafts, board games and puzzles, so we wanted to donate items to bring extra joy in these very challenging times.”
