For Christmas this year, Life Care Center of Elyria residents received gifts from someone other than just their families and the employees at the nursing and rehab center.
Ridge Tool Company in Elyria formed a committee of employees called Professional Tools Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This group’s goal is to create a community of colleagues that foster and encourage a culture of togetherness across the organization.
In 2020, and again in 2021, the committee chose to have an angel tree gift drive for 30 of the residents at Life Care Center of Elyria.
“I think this is such a nice group of younger, culturally diverse individuals doing this because they want to give to the seniors in our community,” said Terri Hodgeman, senior director of business development at the facility.
