“It is inspiring to see our team’s dedication to the older adults we serve. They show that they care not only through their values-driven work, but also through this compassionate pledge to enhance care and services for residents. I am proud to work with individuals who care so deeply for those they serve,”
— Alissa Clouse, UCH director of major gifts and grants.
Compassion. Hospitality. Respect. The team at United Church Homes truly cares about the older adults served and demonstrate this through values-based engagement. This fact is proven through the person-directed care provided at all communities every single day. Additionally, the staff shows their love for the people in their care by donating personal resources for their benefit through the annual Employee Giving Campaign.
How many organizations can claim that the employees came together and gave a transformational gift of nearly $127,000? The September – November 2016 effort with 12 kick-off events over all shifts, at all communities, resulted in increased contributions of seven percent over last year’s campaign.
An astonishing 83 percent of staff participated in this year’s annual Employee Giving Campaign, up 10 percent from the previous year! The campaign is the largest annual appeal at UCH, proving the staff’s commitment to the mission. 2016 marks the most successful employee campaign in UCH’s history — noteworthy as UCH embarks on its second century of service.
