Giving Gifts of Joy During the Holidays
For 10 years, employees from the Merakey older adult and Managed Long-Term Support Services in McMurray, PA have given holiday gifts to people supported in those programs. This year’s gifts also included winter necessities to keep everyone warm.
This event is very meaningful to individuals in the programs since these gifts may be the only ones they receive. Many of the individuals are alone for the holidays, so they truly appreciate the support and comfort provided by Merakey staff members.
Consumers receiving their gifts could be heard stating, “Wow this is amazing, I cannot thank you enough”. “Now I will have something to put under my tree”, “No, I don’t want to see what is in it yet, I will wait till Christmas Morning”, and “Wait till everyone sees what I got, I told them Merakey was the best.” Staff members were equally as excited to share their thoughts, “It makes me feel happy to work for such an amazing company”, “Merakey really made her day, I was afraid she would have nothing on Christmas.”, “Thank you so much for allowing me to give this gift.”
Thank you, Merakey team in McMurray, for adding to the joy of the season by helping those you support!
