Towns and Country recently helped to spread some Easter cheer to the kids at CASA by making and delivering Easter Baskets to them this past Tuesday.
CASA’s mission statement reads, “The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courts. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.”
Town and Country Health & Rehab is a healthcare facility that offers long-term and short-term care to its residents and is managed by Pathway Management. Nursing Facility Administrator Brooke Snyder, RN, spoke of Town and Country’s philosophy of being a community-first company, sharing the sentiment that when you give to your community, your community gives back.
“We’re a very community forward company, and we like to make sure that children are seen and heard and cared for. Something we hold dear to our heart is to make sure that children are cared for,” said Snyder.
The idea for making Easter Baskets to give to CASA was spearheaded by Town and Country’s Marketing/Admissions Director Jodi Hicks. Snyder said of the initiative, “She herself is a mother, and a lot of us department heads are mothers, so we have a soft spot here for the children.”
A total of seventeen Easter baskets were delivered, with twelve of them being donated by Town and Country, and the remaining five donated by LifePath Hospice Care Services in Shreveport.
This isn’t the only initiative Town & Country participates in to reach out to local kids. They also sponsor events with the neighboring organization Mother Gooseland every month. The kids of Mother Gooseland pay that good nature forward by gifting the art they create back to the residents of the facility. Snyder stated that they even plan to create more initiatives to reach out to middle school and high school aged kids in the community.
Before the end of the interview, Snyder wanted to remind the readers of this publication that for a variety of reasons, not every child will be able to take part in the joys of the Easter Holiday, and to keep them in mind when going about celebrations this Sunday, while also remembering why the holiday exists in the first place.
“Not everybody will be able to wake up to an Easter basket, but we can keep everyone in our prayers, and remember that Jesus rose on that day and spread his love throughout the community,” said Snyder.
