We would like to remind everyone of Opengate’s ongoing program which honors or memorializes a special someone from Opengate, our communities, or those committed to our mission with a memory brick or bench.
Through this program we continue to offer the opportunity to individuals and local businesses to purchase either memory bricks or benches as a way to recognize a loved one, a supporter, or to honor their memory.
Funds acquired from the purchase of bricks and benches is another avenue to sponsor projects which are not covered by our regular funding sources. Some of the projects we are faced with are updating and maintenance of our homes, customized furniture to meet the needs of our residents, medical and sensory products, as well as special events and outings.
As you can see in the photos, the bricks are located on a path leading up to the Gazebo located at our Somers location. Benches are spread around the property and add a beautiful touch to the grounds.
We hope you will join us in honoring those who are committed to the mission of Opengate and the individuals we serve.
