Preferred Home Health Care Donates Equipment to Moorestown Police Department
Seven years ago, Jonathan Herman, the COO of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, Inc. (PHHC), with headquarters in Eatontown, N.J., started One Wish, a program that has benefited many and saved lives. At the end of the year, PHHC staff members are asked for one wish they would like to see fulfilled in the upcoming year.
This year Allyson Budassi, client services coordinator for Preferred, Mt. Laurel, N.J., asked that Preferred donate money to replace old FRX Heartstart defibrillators used by the Moorestown Police Department. It was this very equipment that Moorestown policemen had used to revive Allyson Budassi’s father-in-law.
On behalf of the Moorestown Police Department, Chief of Police Lee Lieber sent a letter of thanks to Preferred for donating $1500 to purchase a new FRX Heartstart defibrillator that replaced old units in patrol vehicles. Chief Lieber said this donation is particularly significant because a replaced automated external defibrillator (AED) helped revive Allyson Budassi’s father-in-law. “Of all the services we provide in the course of our duties, lifesaving is by far the most important.”
Allyson Budassi said, “Thank you so much for this donation! The Budassi family is so appreciative of Preferred’s generosity and I’m personally so grateful to work for a company that gives back the way Preferred does.”
Herman said, “I’m proud to see that our One Wish program reinforces some of Preferred’s core philosophies – to help our clients, and to strengthen the many towns and communities we service.”
