The management team of Merakey IDD Philadelphia made 600 HERO goodie bags for Direct Support Professionals as a “thank you” for their ongoing dedication to our residents during COVID-19. The goodies included: chips, pretzels, popcorn, granola bars, cookies, rice crispy treats, clementines, and more. Members of management hand-delivered the bags to 80 group homes across Philadelphia and shared socially distant words of appreciation to our DSPs on shift.
Daniel, a relatively new DSP who started just four months ago, was grateful for the goody bag. Starting a new job during a pandemic has been challenging and stressful at times, but Daniel says that he is happy to be at Merakey and really enjoys working with this great group of gentlemen. Daniel said, “I love my guys and look forward to seeing them!”
