Staff Forgoes Holiday Party to Help Client in Need

happy-shopper.jpgThe staff of Inglis Foundation’s Care Management department chose to forgo their annual holiday party to help a client in need.

Inglis works with physically disabled people creating solutions for their daily life. Troy Casey had had an especially hard year in 2008, when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and also lost custody of his three children. Members of the Care Management team combined their resources to help Mr. Casey purchase gifts for his children.

They also passed on a $75 American Express card, received courtesy of TJX Companies (T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and A.J. Wright).

Inglis Care Manager Jacqueline Smith described the department’s decision. “Mr. Casey has had a pretty tough year, so the Care Management department decided to do something nice for him and his family this holiday season.”

“On December 19, Mr. Casey and his cousin met me at Wal-Mart, and we purchased $215 worth of gifts for his children. Mr. Casey was extremely grateful and – for the first time in a long time – I think he saw that people truly care.”
