Com­mu­ni­ty Engagement

In 2020 our com­mu­ni­ty sup­port­ed us in so many mag­nif­i­cent ways. Vol­un­teers sewed thou­sands of masks in just a few days. Fam­i­ly mem­bers dropped off drinks and snacks for our health care heroes. Com­mu­ni­ty part­ners cheered us on with treats, posters, and parades. While we bat­tled COVID-19 inside of our build­ings with­out vis­i­tors, we nev­er felt alone. Thank you to every sin­gle per­son who donat­ed their time, tal­ent, and trea­sure to help us get through 2020, togeth­er. We couldn’t have done it with­out you.

The Vivian Purvis Impact Award

The Vivian Purvis Impact Award for 2020 is being pre­sent­ed to Mark Hager­man. Mark and his team at Hager­man Group has been an inte­gral part of the con­struc­tion or ren­o­va­tion of every LLV Com­mu­ni­ty. We had planned to hon­or Mark for the 2019 Annu­al Meet­ing but due to COVID-19 the meet­ing was can­celled. As we nav­i­gat­ed 2020 we again turned to Mark for his ser­vice and exper­tise. When we need­ed help to ensure that The Cove was safe­ly sep­a­rate from the rest of the build­ing we asked Hager­man Group. Mark has also stepped up to make a very gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tion to the Pine Val­ley Patio and Per­go­la in Mem­o­ry of Nate Fink. Mark has served Luther­an Life Vil­lages dili­gent­ly over the years and we are hon­ored to rec­og­nize his contributions.

Help us real­ize our goal to upgrade our trans­porta­tion ser­vices for our residents.

As a senior liv­ing orga­ni­za­tion we are not a stranger to death. We are accus­tomed to cel­e­brat­ing life as it ends, hold­ing hands with dying res­i­dents who we love, and hug­ging griev­ing fam­i­ly mem­bers. How­ev­er, due to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, in 2020 every­thing changed about los­ing our dear res­i­dents. For some res­i­dents the end of their life came too soon due to this ugly virus, for oth­ers it was their time to go but it was still impact­ed by strict COVID pro­to­cols. Fam­i­lies weren’t able to prop­er­ly say good-bye or even host prop­er funer­als. We all mourn the inabil­i­ty to gath­er togeth­er to remem­ber and cel­e­brate loved ones. Because of these dif­fer­ences the peo­ple we lost in 2020 seem to hurt in a dif­fer­ent way. 

We are hum­bled by the fam­i­lies who lost loved ones in 2020. Their sup­port and resilience as we, the orga­ni­za­tion they trust­ed to care for their most pre­cious per­son, nav­i­gat­ed an unknown virus is awe inspir­ing. The sup­port and trust we received from these fam­i­lies is a tes­ta­ment to the won­der­ful peo­ple we are blessed to serve. We urge you to con­tin­ue to hold these spe­cial peo­ple in your mem­o­ry, because in doing so you are hon­or­ing a life well lived.
