Springbrook has taken a proactive approach throughout this world-wide crisis, prioritizing the health, safety, and well-being of the more than 1,100 people who choose Springbrook as a service provider and source of stability. In most cases, we have made programmatic and protocol changes in advance of our local, state, and federal authorities. We made the decision to cancel all events in the foreseeable future, including the 2020 Springbrook Gala—This Moment, previously scheduled for April 18.
A Time to Come Together
What does this mean for you? If you were planning to attend, but had not yet purchased your ticket, we ask that you consider making the purchase today. With no event taking place, your entire ticket purchase is a charitable donation to Springbrook, and we will maximize your generous donation. Here are just a few of the ways that a $200 gala “ticket” can make a difference today:
- Provide take out dinner for a Springbrook home from a local restaurant—giving our Dietary staff much needed support, giving staff and residents the variety and fun of “eating out”, and supporting local restaurants that are struggling throughout this time.
- Enable Springbrook to purchase gift cards for our employees to say ‘thank you’ for going above and beyond.
- Enable Springbrook to purchase fun Social Distancing tools like a Nintendo Switch and extra controllers for a house, additional iPads so residents can FaceTime with their families, and special learning apps for our residents and much more!
- Enable us to provide free childcare for essential employees at Springbrook so that they can continue to work during this critical time without added worry and the stress of finding childcare. The majority of our workforce is essential.
When we emerge from all of this and look back on This Moment in history, we hope to see a kinder, more united, and more generous community, led by people like you. Thank you for your understanding, partnership, and generosity.
Support Our Relief Efforts Today
Springbrook is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow to further our work in supporting and protecting our community. A global threat like COVID-19 affects more than just the infected. A pandemic like this touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together.
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. In the midst of this crisis, the safety of Springbrook’s residents and essential employees is of the utmost importance. Of equal significance is maintaining staff and resident morale. With your support, we can continue our work to protect our residents and staff, while also providing engaging and safe experiences, such as the Weekend Challenges between our residential programs and other competitions and activities. Your gift can help to provide incentives and rewards for staying upbeat and engaged during this.
Additionally, Springbrook is a part of numerous communities, and with your generosity, we can continue to give back to our local restaurants through our Taste of the Town program. Through this initiative, your gift can give our dietary staff much needed support and the enjoyment of safely “dining out” for residents and our direct care staff. Together, we can also further acknowledge the incredible employees who are going above and beyond. From free childcare through our Kids Unlimited Preschool to our Appreciation Stations for essential workers, from gift cards for our nursing staff to thank you baskets for our remote employees, your donor dollars will recognize the efforts of those who are giving so much of themselves to care for those whom we serve.
We would love to call you our #GivingTuesdayNow partner, and hope to share your generosity with all of our families, donors, and friends through social media and digital recognition.
