Giving Back to the Community

The MediLodge Whole Person Wellness theme of giving back continued into the early weeks of December at MediLodge of Taylor.

We partnered with the Taylor Senior Center and Retired Senior Volunteer Program, who were doing a pencil drive for the kids of the Taylor School System. When the delivery was made, their count was 580 pencils and our donation doubled that. They were extremely thankful and pleased with our willingness to participate.

Friends of the Taylor Animal Shelter

The Taylor Animal Shelter was another delivery we made. With the cold months coming up and all the dogs in need, we decided they would be another group that we would focus on. We were able to get two boxes of blankets, several bags of dog, cat, puppy and kitten food. Don’t forget the little bag of toys that was delivered as well! They need to have some play time while in their cages. The workers reminded me that their shelter is open M-F from 8-4:30 if anyone is looking to adopt a pet in the upcoming months.

Our donations didn’t just come from our staff members here, our residents families got involved in the giving of items as well. I would like to put out a huge “Thank You” to everyone that participated in helping brighten the days of these animals and children.

MediLodge of Taylor employees distribute food and clothing.

On November 24th, 2013 the staff cooked a huge Holiday meal and delivered it in person to the 144 bed shelter for Veterans in Detroit. The food was donated by Sam’s Club, and prepared by MediLodge staff in our facility kitchen. This Wellness theme continues to be a very popular event and we are now carrying it over into December with a family of five adopted children that we will be providing a special Christmas for. The staff here at MediLodge of Taylor have the biggest hearts imaginable and I am proud to work with these special employees.
