A Soulful Story: Make an Impact Today!

December 29, 2023

"Feeding the Jewish Soul" is a weekly series offering insights into The Legacy's daily impact on the seniors we serve.

Every day, The Legacy acts as the safety net for Dallas’ Jewish seniors. Through generous donations to The Legacy Senior Communities Foundation, charitable care is provided on both our Willow Bend and Midtown Park campuses, as well as through Legacy at Home. Additionally, philanthropic funds provide other experiences for residents, patients, and clients that distinguish our level of living and care known as The Legacy Difference: full-time Rabbi, weekly Shabbat Services and holiday programming in all levels of care, Kosher dining, round-the-clock security, and so much more!

There is still time to join us in making a daily impact for our seniors by contributing to The Legacy Senior Communities Foundation.

During this holiday season, please keep our seniors in mind. Examples of your donation’s impact include:

  • $7,000: Provides one month’s funding gap for one Medicaid patient in our Healthcare Center
  • $4,500: Funds one month’s rental assistance for one Assisted Living resident
  • $1,000: Supplemental security for public Jewish event on campus
  • $500: Funds one week (20 hours) of Personal Assistance Services for a Legacy at Home grant client
  • $230: Covers one day’s funding gap for one Medicaid patient in our Healthcare Center
  • $25: Provides one hour of Personal Assistance Services for a Legacy at Home grant client
