We can always use a little help from our Friends!
Friends Village at Woodstown recently released an opportunity for our friends and supporters to help us raise critical dollars for our everyday operations and resident assistance. This year has presented significant and unprecedented challenges, making this appeal extremely important to our current and future residents and staff members.
As you may have heard, our response to the COVID-19 crisis has been nothing short of miraculous because of the human effort behind every act. We renovated our 500 Wing that was previously used for storage and office space into a 10 bed isolation COVID-19 Unit. The project required a new roof, flooring, paint, plumbing and more. The project began on April 2nd and within just 13 days, Friends Village started treating seniors with COVID-19 from all over South Jersey in the new rooms.
Our staff remains dedicated to the care of every senior who is under our roof. We are proud of this effort and look forward to meeting the needs of every aging adult, especially as we approach a season that may see a rise in Corona Virus cases. We have the right team and the best environment to do so. We ensure the best environment by testing our staff and residents every week to reduce the risk of virus transmission as quickly as possible. The cost for this testing is more than $50,000 per week, an expense that we could not have predicted when budgeting for 2020. Friends Village also continues to follow all CDC guidelines throughout our community with strict cleaning procedures and safe communication practices. We take this responsibility seriously and welcome any questions our friends may have about our COVID-19 response.
Please consider a donation to our annual appeal and know that your financial support will have a direct impact on the health and safety of our staff and residents.
