Ken and Garie Perry Endow New Readiness Fund

Bethesda Health | June 6, 2020

Since the onset of the Coronavirus earlier this year, using personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks and gloves, and sanitizing chemicals and equipment are among the ways we are keeping staff and residents safe. As the pandemic continues, however, we anticipate our supply of PPE items and medical equipment to dwindle.

In response, Ken and Garie Perry, residents living at Bethesda Gardens, generously established an endowment with a gift of $50,000 that will help Bethesda be prepared for any crisis or emergency. The Ken and Garie Perry Readiness Fund will be used to purchase lifesaving PPE items or emergency medical supplies and equipment to help keep Bethesda seniors safe.

“We have seen what the pandemic has done to all of our lives, and we just think a fund like this is very much needed,” Ken said. Contributions will prepare Bethesda for crises like COVID-19, as well as other emergencies that could strike our communities.

You can help Ken and Garie grow this fund, which is critical to Bethesda’s mission of caring for seniors, and providing them with a safe place to live.
