Pine haven heritage home Compliment - Outrage - assisted living
RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA -- I represent Pine Haven Heritage Home,we are a locally owned assisted living facility. About 2 months ago i wanted to think of something that would help our residents join in our 3 activities we offer daily. I thought that maybe if we offered a "Pine Haven Buck" for every activity they joined in and offer them a "Pine Haven Store" at the end of every month this would improve our residents participation. Well it has been a grand success,but our staff has fully taken on the whole financial part of this store,so i thought i would ask some local businesses for a few donations.Pepsi was at the top of my list since most our residents drink "Diet Pepsi" when i contacted the local pepsi cola plant they said"we donot donate,and if i was to do for you then we would have to do for all" I am very offended by this considering the amount of money we all have spent on this product,i fill we should all give back to our community.so i am posting this on this web site so that other people know how we were treated as a locally nieghboring business.
