Organization pays it forward to caregivers

A not-for-profit organization is showing gratitude to caregivers who help residents in assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing centers.

Phoenix Holocaust Association is heading the efforts to provide a grocery store gift card of at least $50 to each caregiver in several different Valley senior living communities. Besides receiving a $5,000 grant from Albertson’s-Safeway, the association also has kicked off a GoFundMe campaign to raise more money to meet the project’s goal of $10,000. Due to quickly exceeding that goal, the not-for-profit organization has changed its goal to $15,000. It hopes to keep adding more caregivers at more senior living centers as long as fundraising keeps going well.

The first senior facilities to take part in the campaign include The Palazzo, a private, full-continuing care community at 6250 N. 19th Ave.; Belmont Village in Scottsdale; Kivel Campus of Care in Phoenix and Friendship Village Tempe.

The Phoenix Holocaust Association, incorporated in 1985, is a partnership of Holocaust survivors, their descendants and the community that aims to honor the memory and legacy of survivors and victims and to promote awareness of the Holocaust.
