Holding One Another Up

Front and center on her desk, a sign says, “Angels exist but sometimes they don’t have wings, they are called friends.” Shelby Curry is one of our employee angels at Westminster Canterbury Richmond. She has been blessing residents and staff for the last 35 years. She understands the importance of supporting one another through encouragement, prayer and “holding one another up.”

When her mother developed breast cancer a few years ago, Shelby turned to the financial assistance program Westminster Canterbury had established for employees. Since then, she has been contributing to the W·E·A·V·E (Workforce-Education-Assistance-Volunteerism-Engagement) Program through payroll deduction as a way of giving back.

Taking care of colleagues is important to Shelby. To her, they are family. Shelby is quick to remind other coworkers: “There are other employees that have things that they’re going through. They need financial help. No matter how much it is, contribute. You’ll be surprised at how much it helps.” Thank you, Shelby Curry, for your incredible example of goodness and generosity!
