Russell Home for Atypical Children
Dear Parrot Heads of Central Florida,
I would like to share a portion of our July blog written on our website by Pam, our Employee Liaison.
Each month our employees vote on who they want to see as their “employee of the month.” Although they all are so deserving I want to tell you about another very special award that is given out by the Russell Home, “The Grandma Russell Spirit Award.”
The Grandma Russell Spirit Award is only given out on a rare occasion when we feel it is very well earned and deserved. Although we believe all our employees are amazing I want to tell you about who and why these exceptional employees were chosen for this award.
To be honored with the Grandma Russell Spirit Award they must show unconditional love with a smile, selflessness and joy while caring for each resident within the Russell Home. They consistently go beyond the call of duty and lovingly tackle all that is asked each day. Their names are engraved on a plaque hanging in the front entrance of the home!
Next time you visit the Russell Home thank your staff, being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest and most uplifting things you can hear. This award has only been given out eight times in four years! Your gift to the Russell Home helps us continue to honor all our caregivers and other staff for the amazing jobs they do every day! Thank you for your kind donation.
