Holiday Season 2023 at Heritage

We continue to help make the holiday season special at Heritage. And you can be a part of placing smiles on the faces of our residents and staff. There are many ways you can get involved and join with us as we promote Hope, Dignity, and Purposeful Living in our communities.

Looking for a way to brighten your loved one’s day? Want to encourage a staff member? Select the type of greeting you’d like to send, who you’re sending it to, enter your message, and we’ll print and hand deliver it. Make someone’s day today!

Your donation will play a crucial role in providing engaging activities, innovative programming, and most importantly Christmas joy to all those we serve and to those we employ. Give as an individual or corporate sponsor, or make a donation as a church community!

The 4th Annual Virtual Shoebox Parade is open to staff, residents, community members, and businesses and photos have been placed in an album on our main Heritage Facebook. Click here to view the album and vote. The photo with the most “likes” by noon on December 1 will be the winner and receive a prize!
