A "Wish Comes True"

by Emma Ferrell | May 25, 2018


Heritage Health residents in Hoopeston, IL will soon enjoy various special events due to the Wish Comes True grant that was sponsored by First Farmers Bank and Trust. We recently partnered with CRA Partners, powered by Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation, to make this grant available at no cost to the facility. 

As a sponsored senior care facility, the Wish Comes True grant’s purpose is to fulfill a wish or need for the residents at Heritage Health.  Heritage Health will utilize the grant to provide live music entertainment events for its residents. “Our organization is proud to honor and show our appreciation to the folks at Heritage Health. We sincerely hope that the entertainment provides memorable fellowship opportunities for the residents and brings lots of smiles to all,” said Gene Miles, President and CEO of First Farmers Bank & Trust.

 

“Senior Crimestoppers is a way for an administrator to enhance the lives of the residents they serve by providing an additional layer of safety and security.  In addition to the crime prevention program, CRA Partners and First Farmers Bank & Trust, want to provide special items or events that provide endless hours of entertainment and meaningful contact that the facility might not be able to provide in its already stretched budget,” said Terry Rooker, president of Senior Crimestoppers.
