“Heritage is blessed to have partners such at the CRCF who have come alongside us as we care for our greatest generation, our seniors. Their generosity assists Heritage and our mission to promote Hope, Dignity, and Purposeful Living for all those we serve. We are truly grateful for their support,” she said.

Haglund shared that Gayle Williams, a COTA/CNA at Heritage, was instrumental in initiating the grant.
