The United Methodist Retirement Communities (UMRC) Foundation mission is to promote the wellness, dignity, and independence of seniors by supporting the residents, staff, and communities UMRC serves.
UMRC Foundation is delighted to report that our fundraising efforts to create nurturing garden spaces for our memory care residents at Towsley Village have been a phenomenal success, thanks to YOU!
As you know, we received an anonymous challenge grant of $50,000 to bring these therapeutic gardens to life. You acted quickly with love and generosity overflowing, helping us raise over $180,000 for the garden project!
Because you care, these new gardens will rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit of seniors with dementia, while bringing joy and peace to their families as well. These spaces will feature hands-on container gardens where residents can dig in the dirt to grow their own flowers and vegetables, a spectacular cutting garden, fire pit, and plenty of space for gathering with friends and family. Thank you for giving our residents the opportunity to enjoy the serenity of the outdoors in a secure and welcoming setting. We anticipate ground-breaking in late September.
At UMRC, we celebrate each day how dreams can become reality when passion, faith, and philanthropy come together. Thank you for making this life-changing and life-affirming project possible for our most vulnerable residents.
