This year, Jeff Ransom celebrates his 31st anniversary with The Hickman and Jen Harris celebrates her 16th anniversary! Combined, that’s a total of 47 years of service! Being a part of The Hickman family for so long, both have seen many changes and have shared memorable times with our residents, residents’ families, colleagues, Board Members, and volunteers!

Our Director of Advancement, Charles “Ebbie” Alfree, recorded a friendly Zoom discussion with Jeff and Jen (see the video below). The two longtime employees shared why they believe The Hickman is so special, their most cherished moments, and expressed their appreciation for our summer matching gift challenge!

We are very grateful to our anonymous donor who made the challenge possible! Her investment in The Hickman is making a significant impact on our community during this unprecedented time. Your gift can be doubled through her $10,000 Matching Challenge by:
Staff Chat - Longtime Employees Discuss Fond Memories of The Hickman Community

  • Making a larger gift than your normal annual giving in recent years, even if it’s just one dollar over, or
  • Making a first-time gift of any amount, which includes gifts from individuals who haven’t given in over five years, and
  • Clicking Here to make that donation or contacting Ebbie ( or 484.760.6416) for assistance. Ebbie can also provide your gift history.

We thank everyone who has given so far. Because of you, we are at 43% of our match goal. We hope we can depend on those who haven’t made a donation yet. Having your gifts doubled is especially needed now, since we had to put costly measures in place when the COVID-19 pandemic began in March.

With your support we will continue keeping our residents and staff members healthy and safe from contracting the novel virus.

I’m always recommending The Hickman. As long-time residents in the area, this is our community. Living here has given my Dad a sense of belonging... a feeling of home.”

The staff here really do care. I enjoy the social aspects, and the food is excellent.”

Within the first week, my Dad settled in. Not long after that, he said one day 'I'm glad it was my idea to come here.”
