The residents at Jefferson’s Ferry Life Plan Community fully embrace the lifestyle that continues to give back to their quality of life.   They demonstrated that belief in their community recently, rallying to raise funds to provide meals to the hardworking Jefferson’s Ferry staff as a way of thanking them for the exceptional services that they provide to residents. Twelve year resident Margaret (Marge) Pols chaired a fundraiser that over four days raised more than enough money to provide two full meals to every active staff member at the life plan community, with the additional monies allocated to fund Jefferson’s Ferry’s staff education and assistance program and holiday bonus fund. 

“This latest outpouring of generosity is one of many gestures of appreciation that demonstrates the bond that our residents have with our staff,” said Jefferson’s Ferry President and CEO Bob Caulfield.  “The commitment to community that we all share makes Jefferson’s Ferry a very special place to live.”

Close to 120 residents contributed to the fund, with donations ranging from $5.00 to $500.00.  Each staff member received two vouchers good for any meal from the community’s café, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“Jefferson’s Ferry is our home, and as neighbors in this community we wanted to demonstrate our thanks to an incredible staff,” said Marge Pols.  “They always go the extra mile, and then some, to keep us well supplied with life’s necessities.”
