Bridgeway Senior Healthcare Aids Employees Affected by Hurricane Ida — Bridgewater, Hillsborough, New Jersey
Hurricane Ida was no match for the Bridgeway Senior Healthcare (BSH) family! The company has assisted 26 employees from the Bridgeway Care and Rehabilitation Centers and The Avalon Assisted Living Residences with aid through its Hurricane Ida Assistance Program.
The remnants of Hurricane Ida impacted the community and the BSH family in life-altering ways. Many BSH employees returned home to extensive property damage and prolonged periods of time without power and running water. A number of devoted employees lost their cars in their efforts to make their way in to work during the storm or leave the buildings after working overtime.
Many in the community asked how they could help. In response, Bridgeway and Avalon created a GoFundMe that served as a universal location where donations for Bridgeway and Avalon employees, who were impacted by the storm, could be collected.
In total, $14,160 was raised. In an effort to launch the campaign, BSH companies contributed the first $10,000. The rest was donated by families, friends and even other employees.
“We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity,” said Jessica Pelligrino Tsoukalas, Director of Business Development and Strategy at BSH. “Our employees are so grateful for the generosity and support from our amazing community! Thank you to everyone who donated.”
