March 13, 2012 - PRLog -- The Jewish Family Services of Greater Dallas recently hosted their annual awards ceremony to formally thank all of their volunteers who have helped the surrounding community. The Legacy at Willow Bend was awarded the “Rookie Award” for their devoted hours of helping with the Meals on Wheels program.

“The ‘Rookie Award’ is given to those volunteers who within their first year have gone above and beyond,” said Janine Pullman, director of volunteers, Jewish Family Services. “The volunteers from The Legacy have done a tremendous job. They always show up and always do their jobs with smiles on their faces! When they are not here we miss them, and they miss us as well.”

Each week, staff members and residents from the assisted living and memory care programs of The Legacy go to JFS and package kosher meals for north Dallas seniors. They lay the food out, assemble them into meals, and then package them for delivery.

“The Legacy at Willow Bend is proud to accept the ‘Rookie Award’ on behalf of our volunteers who dedicate their time each week to the Meals on Wheels program,” said Lana Van Giesen, executive director, The Legacy at Willow Bend. “The JFS is a great organization, and we are happy to be a part of their community efforts.”

The Legacy at Willow Bend, Plano’s first and only life care retirement community, is situated on a 28-acre site at Spring Creek Parkway between Preston Road and Ohio Drive. The Legacy at Willow Bend offers resort-style services and amenities for active, independent seniors, as well as all levels of health care services on-site. The community features 103 independent living apartment homes, 12 custom independent living villas, 40 assisted living apartment homes, 18 memory support suites, and 60 private skilled healthcare suites.

The Legacy at Willow Bend is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit retirement community owned by parent company, The Legacy Senior Communities, Inc. The Legacy at Willow Bend, the only Jewish-sponsored life care retirement community in Texas, is open to people of all faiths.  For information, call (972) 468-6208, or visit www.thelegacyWB.org.
