These are unprecedented times, and our deepest concerns go out to you as well as those directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially those on the front line keeping our communities safe. These dedicated women and men and their families are making extraordinary sacrifices in these difficult times to protect and serve the most vulnerable among us. Thankfully, Milwaukee Catholic Home has its own “angels,” who work in their unique and caring ways each day.
With conditions changing rapidly, several key events and activities at Milwaukee Catholic Home looked a little differently in 2020 than they did in the past. While the Patio Pops Summer Concert Series and the Fall Harvest Festival were reimagined to follow social distancing guidelines, others, such as the January Annual Partnership Event, have been postponed until further notice. Despite the challenges this year has brought us, we at Milwaukee Catholic Home continue to make concerted efforts to make our residents feel that they are engaged, healthy, and connected. While much of what we do may look different, that spirit of connection is alive and well as we stand together while staying apart!
At this time of year, Milwaukee Catholic Home residents and friends have traditionally been invited to consider contributing to the Employee Appreciation Fund. While this token of gratitude has always been appreciated, this acknowledgement seems especially critical this year. A global pandemic didn’t stop countless staff from coming into work with a relentless commitment to make the lives of every resident better. Their selfless devotion to our mission is truly what makes Milwaukee Catholic Home the exceptional, loving community that it is.
You can be part of our expression of gratitude by contributing in support of our staff who enrich the lives of older adults. Please consider a gift today. 100% of the money collected in the Employee Appreciation Fund goes directly to employees of Milwaukee Catholic Home.
As always, we are grateful for your thoughtful consideration and support. Please continue to keep the Milwaukee Catholic Home community in your prayers as we keep you in ours. More than ever, we wish you God’s blessings at this special time of year.
