Staff members from Edelweiss Village, the assisted living residence on the Deutsches Altenheim campus, recently stopped by the local fire and police departments to drop off lunch as their way of saying thank you.
“We wanted to thank some of our local heroes in person for continuing to work so diligently, day in and day out, to keep the West Roxbury community safe, “explained Jill Hemeon, Director of Community Relations at Edelweiss Village. “It was a special time for us to enjoy lunch with the ‘best of the best.’ Thank you to Boston Fire Department Engine 30/Ladder 25, West Roxbury and Boston City Police Department District 5, West Roxbury. We sincerely appreciate your hard work, courage, and commitment.”
The assisted living will host a Heroes Breakfast in March to further pay tribute to these amazing individuals. Added Hemeon, “We really can’t thank them enough for their tireless efforts. They are the true heroes in our community.”
