Legacy Health Services Honk For Heroes Parade
Family-owned Legacy Health Services, which operates 10 skilled nursing facilities and three assisted living communities in Northeast Ohio, hosted a parade in tandem with “National Superhero Day” to honor its company heroes working to keep their residents safe. Called “Honk for Heroes,” the parade was held on Tuesday, April 28 – “National Superhero Day” – and featured local firefighters and their trucks, city leaders, including the mayor and city council members, plus families and community members who wanted to show their support for the Legacy staff.
The parade kicked off at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday at multiple Legacy locations and took place at each location until about 4:15 as staff changed shifts. Legacy has skilled nursing facilities in Parma, Cleveland Heights, Chardon, Cleveland, Middleburg Heights, Wickliffe and Oregon in suburban Toledo.
“Every department has shown extraordinary strength and dedication to our residents during this time, and they all deserve a #Superhero thank you,’’ said Legacy CEO Eliav Sharvit, who is part of the third-generation of the family who founded Legacy more than 50 years ago after immigrating to the U.S.
Local community members and resident families were invited to participate by decorating their cars, dressing up as their favorite superhero or simply just showing up to honk and say thank you. Parade participants stayed in their vehicles and simply drove by or around our facilities. Staff at each of Legacy’s buildings received cookies from Devine Delights in Strongsville in the shape of a Captain America shield and stars to enjoy during the day.
