Amid continuing pain at the pump, senior living organization offers needed relief to employees

June 16, 2022

Rising fuel costs are being felt across the Lonestar State and across the nation at large. For many working families, affording enough gas to travel to and from work, school and the store has become as challenging as ever. Like a cool glass of water amid the summer heat, employees of one Texas senior living provider have received some much-needed refreshing news.

In a company-wide email sent on June 14, President and CEO, Alan Brown, shared with associates of Methodist Retirement Communities (MRC), “I know the cost of getting to and from work has increased for most of you as gas prices have reached record highs. To the extent, we are able; MRC wants to provide some temporary help. Beginning with your June 16 paycheck, $30 for full time and $15 for part time employees will be added to your pay to help offset increased fuel costs.”

MRC owns and operates communities throughout Texas, including in Bryan, College Station, Corpus Christi, Huntsville, Lufkin, Texarkana, La Porte, League City, and in Fort Worth.

Brown said it was important, especially as an organization that honors and serves older adults as an expression of Christ’s love to assist employees during a challenging time.

Employees across the state, like Mary Hodges, Concierge at The Crossings in League City, have expressed appreciation for the assistance. “I am so honored to work for such an amazing team,” she said. “MRC has changed my life and I absolutely appreciate this incentive.”

 Brown indicated the increase in pay will continue as they monitor the price at the pump.
