MONTICELLO – Resorts World Catskills (RWC) unveiled a $15,000 donation to The Arc Greater Hudson Valley through the Resorts World Gives (RWG) program to help the organization’s housing residents overcome technological barriers to telehealth.
The funds will go towards the purchase of 38 iPads for use in The Arc’s family-style homes and apartments, with a limit of one device per residence. The iPads will provide residents uninterrupted and reliable access to telehealth visits via conferencing tools, such as FaceTime, Skype and Zoom.
Resorts World Gives supports organizations, projects and programs that create opportunities for economic and social progress in the communities where Resorts World Catskills and Resorts World New York City do business. To date, RWG has donated $3M to over 200 local organizations and matched 100% of employee donations.
“We are proud to support The Arc Greater Hudson Valley in providing a wider range of choices for emotional, physical and self-care needs for those who need it most,” said Meghan Taylor, VP of Government Relations and Public Relations, Resorts World Catskills & Resorts World New York City. “Empowering individuals to make informed health decisions is key to building a better community.”
“The Arc Greater Hudson Valley depends on contributions and support from programs like Resorts World Gives to bring these life-changing initiatives to life,” said Joan Glase, The Arc Greater Hudson Valley Director of Public Relations and Foundation. “Together, we are improving the health and happiness of countless residents and spreading awareness of the barriers to telehealth access for low-income patients.”
