The Southern Berks News - - LOCAL NEWS - From Her­itage of Green Hills

The Her­itage of Green Hills, a healthy life plan com­mu­nity in Shilling­ton, an­nounced that the Her­itage Ben­e­fit Fund has raised more than $100,000 since the Fund was es­tab­lished. The Fund, a 501 (c) (3) or­ga­ni­za­tion, as­sists res­i­dents of the se­nior com­mu­nity who have out­lived their fi­nan­cial re­sources or are faced with un­ex­pected med­i­cal and other ex­penses.

The Her­itage Ben­e­fit Fund was es­tab­lished in 2014 and has raised $101,652 to ben­e­fit res­i­dents in need. A re­cent fundrais­ing event, the fifth an­nual Casino Night held in Oc­to­ber, raised $2,997 for the Fund bring­ing the year-to­date fundrais­ing to­tal to $10,499.

“We have a very strong sense of com­mu­nity at The Her­itage,” said Pat Lang, a res­i­dent of the com­mu­nity and chair­woman of the Fund’s board. “We re­ally care for one an­other here – res­i­dents and staff – and that dy­namic is ex­em­pli­fied by the Her­itage Ben­e­fit Fund. We un­der­stand that some of our neigh­bors need a help­ing hand from time to time. Who bet­ter to as­sist them than their neigh­bors?

“We’re grate­ful, too, for the gen­eros­ity of our sur­round­ing com­mu­nity for our sup­port­ing our fundrais­ing.”

Her­itage of Green Hills res­i­dents hold a va­ri­ety of fundrais­ers through­out the year to sup­port the Fund in­clud­ing two an­nual events: The Her­itage Golf Out­ing in June and The Her­itage Casino Night in Oc­to­ber.
