Tunick & Company Donates $25,000 to Benefit Ebenezer Gardens Senior Housing

Theodore Tunick & Company has recently contributed $25,000 to benefit the Ebenezer Gardens Senior Housing Facility through the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI).

Lutheran Social Services of the Virgin Islands (LSSVI), which operates Ebenezer Gardens, identified a number of critical needs for the housing facility, one of which is to renovate public spaces to enhance services and accessibility for residents. Specifically, the grant funds will allow LSSVI to begin construction of a new office area for the social service coordinator and AmeriCorps staff members.

“Currently, the staff members are located on the bottom floor of the facility, which is not easily accessible to all of the residents, many of which have mobility limitations,” said LSSVI CEO Junia John-Straker. “It is also in a shared public space, which makes it inconvenient for residents who desire private meetings with the social service coordinator.”

Funds from the donation will go toward construction costs, office furniture and supplies.

“CFVI has worked closely with LSSVI on a number of initiatives over the years and has great appreciation for the critical role of the organization, which provides services for children, elderly, individuals with disabilities, expectant mothers and low-income clients,” said CFVI President Dee Baecher-Brown.
