Rose Acre Farms Employees Hold Contest to Raise Money for Nursing Home Residents

by Mark Whittington | Jan 17, 2018
Employees at Rose Acre Farms were in the giving spirit this holiday season, raising money to donate gifts to residents at the Lutheran Community home in Seymour.

For one week, Rose Acre Farms employees were able to vote for one of four employees to receive a pie in the face by donating money. Originally, whichever employee had raised the most amount of money received a pie in the face if the total donations tallied under $800. If donations totalled over $800, all four employees eligible would receive a pie in the face. Finally, if over $1000 was raised for donations to the Lutheran Community Home, all four employees plus Rose Acre Farms COO, Tony Wesner, would receive a pie in the face. After all monetary donations were added, over $1800 was donated, and all five employees received a pie in the face.

“This is something we definitely want to do every year,” said Tim Lush. We are hoping that each region or farm will get involved and compete against each other. Hopefully more and more people participate every year and we can continue to give back to those in the nursing home. It's a fun way to raise money to a very legit cause.”

After all donations were collected, 26 residents at the Lutheran Community Home received gifts from Rose Acre Farms Employees. When delivering the gifts, Rose Acre Farms employees brought their own families to help distribute the gifts, sing carols and visit with the residents. The money left over after purchasing gifts was then donated to three families in need in the community.

This event will take place each year during the holiday season. Contact us for more information.
