Garland Concludes 125th Anniversary Initiatives With Donation To Neighborhood Healthcare And Rehabilitation Facility

Cleveland, OH - The Garland Company Inc. concluded its 125th year anniversary charitable initiatives with a donation to Cityview Healthcare & Rehabilitation in its Cleveland neighborhood. The recipients of Garland’s multiple charitable initiatives throughout the historic year were chosen based on unique needs and community impact, and Cityview exhibited many qualities that made it the well-deserved bookend to these initiatives.

On December 18, 2020 a group from Garland’s headquarters had the pleasure of visiting Cityview to drop off the donated goods.

Cityview, located a few miles away from the Garland headquarters and in view of the Cleveland cityscape, serves around 125 residents, which seemed perfectly fitting to commemorate Garland’s 125th anniversary. Cityview serves as both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care for their residents ranging in age anywhere from their 20s to their 90s.

Due to the pandemic, Garland knew healthcare facilities such as Cityview would be experiencing a drastic shift in need. In addition to the healthcare items that are always appreciated, Cityview became in desperate need of devices to conduct telehealth appointments. With this in mind, Garland donated 25 iPads which residents can now utilize for telehealth appointments, and to play games for entertainment.

On December 18, 2020, a team of volunteers from Garland brought the iPads to Cityview along with nearly 100 pairs of gloves, hats and scarves, and 90 winter jackets to keep the residents warm in time for the approaching Cleveland winter. And the iPads won’t be the only things keeping the residents of Cityview entertained; close to 100 playing cards, colored pencils and activity books were donated as well. Without forgetting the immediate needs of the facility, Garland also donated 120 pre-packaged bags of toiletries containing shampoo, razors, toothbrushes and more.

The administrative team at Cityview invited the Garland employees to drop off the donations and receive their immense gratitude, noting that this donation was a true “Christmas miracle” for their facility. Anna Moehnert, Cityview’s corporate clinical liaison, thanked the Garland team: “We thank you and our residents definitely thank you, we really appreciate this nice gesture right now.”

For Garland, 2020 was categorized by both historic celebration and historic change throughout the world. Among the global hardships of the pandemic, there was no better year than this to fund these charitable initiatives. Throughout this unforgettable year, Garland was able to provide these supplies to Cityview as well as 125 backpacks of supplies to the local Miles Park School, a $15,000 donation to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, a $12,500 scholarship to an employee’s child and more than $9,500 in donations to the favorite charities of Garland’s employees.

“As we head into our now 126th year in business, we all feel a greater regard and responsibility to our community that we intend to build upon every year. This community has built and shaped us over our history and it is such an honor to be able to give back in these unique ways. We cannot celebrate our successes without recognizing the factors that got us to this place,” said Garland President David Sokol.
