NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Residents of Lantern Hill, a developed and managed Erickson Living senior living community in New Providence, New Jersey, raised more than $139,000 for the community's Staff Appreciation Fund. The campaign was launched to provide a way for residents to show their gratitude to non-management hourly employees on campus.

On December 3, Lantern Hill hosted a Staff Appreciation Fund celebration where residents were able to express their appreciation toward employees and help distribute donated funds to each eligible employee. At Lantern Hill, eligible employees may include the community's wait staff, dining associates, security officers, communication and administrative staff, banquet servers, maintenance workers, culinary team, housekeepers, Certified Medical Assistants, and Certified Nursing Assistants, totaling 257 staff members

"Thank you to our residents for their generosity and for recognizing the hard work that our employees do to make Lantern Hill a great place to live and work," said Human Resources Director Suson Tillman-Taylor. "The fund is a wonderful opportunity for residents to give a gift to the employees who mean so much to them all year."
