Tributes take charitable giving a step further, by making a gift in someone’s name, either in memory or in honor of an individual or group, or in celebration of an occasion, such as an anniversary, birthday, or event. The Plymouth Harbor Foundation is delighted and grateful to accept these gifts.
On January 16, 2013 the Smith Care Center Staff was presented with a tribute gift that came from a past rehabilitation patient in their honor. Mary Ann and Ted Simon said they were inspired to make the gift because, in their words, the support given by the staff during Mrs. Simon’s short-term stay was amazing, professional, and delivered with a human approach that was different and unique from their past experiences with other facilities. The gift was a complete surprise and very generous. Please join us in extending our heartfelt gratitude to the Simons for their support of our services. The Therapy Room was lined with staff from all over the Smith Care Center to accept the gift.
“This gift underscores the excellence of our team! It is clear that our committed staff find personal satisfaction in the physical, emotional, and spiritual successes of those we serve,” says Joe Devore, Vice President of Health Services at Plymouth Harbor.
That spirit of caring is also the driving force behind philanthropy at Plymouth Harbor. Over the decades, members of our resident population, their families, employees, and philanthropists in the broader community have voluntarily donated more than $12,000,000 to perpetuate the Plymouth Harbor mission. We celebrate contributions of time, talent, and financial resources, believing that service to and support of other people is a worthy lifelong value.
“When one takes the time to show their appreciation for the care our staff provides through a charitable gift, it is the ultimate compliment. We are very grateful for the gift and the recognition that Mr. and Mrs. Simon have given to our staff,” adds Becky Pazkowski, Vice President of Philanthropy at Plymouth Harbor.
