We have seen firsthand the effects of the pandemic on our daily lives, especially within our work in senior living. Through the past two plus years we have witnessed tragedies not only stemming from the virus itself, but side effects including lockdowns, isolation and mental health issues as well as personal financial challenges both at home and abroad.
Given these challenges and the aftermath of the pandemic, we as an organization want to take an active role in coming alongside affected communities and individuals, thus the creation of Stage Cares.
Stage Cares is a vehicle to see largescale impacts be made throughout the world. Our employees are encouraged to give $5.00 from each paycheck ($10 per month) to the Stage Cares Fund. These funds will be matched dollar for dollar and the resulting fund will be used to support three primary causes.
Helping Hands is a non-profit organization formed to help individuals with unexpected life challenges. Stage Cares will have resources available for our own staff to apply for support via Helping Hands when unexpected circumstances arise.
