Independent Living residents at Luther Acres, a Luthercare community in Lititz, organized their own “Community Clamor” event last week during a shift change to thank our healthcare heroes for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to keeping our communities healthy and safe!
More than 160 residents showed their support on Wednesday, April 27, by cheering, holding up signs, and banging on pots and pans or musical instruments at several locations on campus, including the Healthcare Center and the Personal Care Apartment Building.
This deeply emotional and uplifting display of encouragement was a great blessing to Luthercare’s frontline healthcare workers – reminding them just how much support they can count on from the Luther Acres community. To all of our residents, thank you for your support and for reminding us that we’re all in this together.
