TPR Donates to Hospice of the Valley

TPR Donates to Hospice of the Valley

On November 30, 2020 the Foundation made a donation of $5,000 to the Hospice of The Valley, Lund Home, that is a critical care facility near Mercy Gilbert Hospital. They are dedicated to helping those in hospice suffering from COVID 19. Like many non-profits, HOV is suffering because of the inability to hold fundraisers due to the pandemic. The foundation made this gift to help them continue their essential work in the difficult time.

Thanksgiving Meals Delivered by TPR

Thanksgiving Meals Delivered by TPR

Because of COVID 19, many Trilogy residents were alone for Thanksgiving this year. Travel restrictions, social distancing, and other related issues meant they could not be with family and friends. Recognizing this, the TPR Foundation began a program to bring a free, hot, Thanksgiving meal to those who were spending Thanksgiving alone. Despite short notice, around 35 meals were delivered on Thanksgiving Day to Trilogy residents. Each meal consisted of turkey breast, mashed potatoes, stuffing, dinner roll, and pumpkin pie.

TPR to Provide Thanksgiving Dinners

Due to various concerns and restrictions caused by the COVID pandemic, the TPR Foundation realizes that some of our friends in the Trilogy community may not be able to gather with friends and family. For those residents who might be spending the holiday by themselves, the Foundation is providing a Thanksgiving meal delivered to their home.

This is our first effort in such an endeavor, so we’re starting small, limiting the offer to 50 residents of Trilogy at Power Ranch and one meal per household.
