Give to WRC Senior Services
At WRC, our mission to rejoice and celebrate life could not be fulfilled without the generosity of friends, neighbors, families, and our community.
WHERE YOUR GENEROSITY CAN SHINE
Benevolent/ Charitable Care- This is provided to residents who have exhausted their financial resources and cannot afford the full cost of their care. Last year, WRC provided over $1.5 million in benevolent care. Choose the “WRC General Fund” designation for your gift to be allotted towards benevolent care where it is needed most.
Resident Life Enhancement- Life enhancement funds go towards enriching the lives of residents at the WRC community of your choosing. These funds are often used for “extras” that benefit all residents and go above and beyond their basic daily needs, such as activities, entertainment, musical performances, specialized equipement, and more!
Special Projects- WRC has plenty of special projects to direct your generosity! Below are a few examples, but please contact our Director of Development, Danielle Corrigan- Gabler, at [email protected] or 814-849-1205, for the most up-to-date special projects going on throughout the WRC continuum.
Tablet for a WRC Resident: The COVID-19 pandemic has been particularly challenging for older adults, who can suffer from social isolation due to visiting restrictions put on personal care and nursing homes by the national and state government. For just $50, you can purchase a tablet for a WRC resident to help them connect with their families via video chat, as well as provide them with endless entertainment options
Birdfeeder Project at Laurelbrooke Landing: Laurels resident and self- pronounced bird woman, Carole Briggs, has started an amazing project on Laurelbrooke Landing’s campus! For residents who reside in Laurelbrooke Personal Care and at McKinley Health Center in Brookville, they have the opportunity to put a picture of a bird in their first floor windows, and Carole is going around and installing birdfeeders for residents to enjoy! To aid Carole in this endeavor, WRC Senior Services is looking for donations to buy more stakes/ shepard hooks, feeders, and of course, more bird food!
Fence the Garden Project at Edgewood Heights: Edgewood Heights residents are hoping to soon enjoy a new outdoor space! Plans are underway to create a new garden and patio are outside the dining room at the facility overlooking New Bethlehem from atop Keck Avenue. A donation towards this project will provide residents with a safe outdoor space to enjoy year- round.
