Philadelphia Native and Bethlehem Home Resident Treated to Pat's Steaks
Thomas Brushman, a resident of the Good Shepherd Home-Bethlehem, was treated to a trip to Philadelphia just to chow down on a cheese steak from Pat's Steaks. Pat, a native of Philly, has been a Good Shepherd resident since 2011, but this was the first time he took advantage of the Community Access Fund which is supported by donor gifts, such as a recent grant received from the Mary Anna Deardorff Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation. Amy Fink, an LPN, and Jennifer Szakacs-Strohl, a recreational therapist, accompanied Thomas. "I'd never seen Thomas so happy," says Jennifer. "His smiling face made my heart want to blow up. We were near tears."
