Over twenty years ago, some Hot Springs Village residents decided to start a fund with the sole purpose of providing a year-end cash appreciation gift for POA workers — not management employees, just you, the line employees who go out and do the work every day. We do this because we understand that without your dedication and skill, Hot Springs Village would be unable to properly function as a community. So, thank you for your efforts on our behalf!
Through the years, the Hot Springs Village Employees Benefit Fund has solicited donations from Village residents through an annual direct mail campaign. In 2020, we began expanding our outreach with this web site, and with enhanced contribution options.
THE YEAR-END APPRECIATION GIFT
Your year-end cash gift will be given to you in person by one of our Board members during your annual POA Christmas luncheon in December. If you are unable to attend the luncheon, we will work with the Human Resources Department to contact you directly to make sure your donation is delivered.
In addition to your annual gift, the Board has created a Catastrophic Emergency Assistance fund that can be used at the Board’s discretion, to assist any POA worker who experiences financial difficulty as a result of a personal emergency. Typically, we can provide assistance to help with expenses you might have as a result of a serious medical emergency, a death in the immediate family, or other personal tragedies. While the Fund is probably not able to provide cash to cover all your emergency costs, our contribution will enable you to cover some expenses, and any funds you receive can be used as you see fit.
To apply for emergency funds, all you need to do is complete the attached application, or pick up a copy of the application from our POA liaison in the Human Resources department. Upon completion, submit the form to Human Resources, and your application will be sent to our Board for consideration.
Once again, please accept our thanks for your efforts each and every day on behalf of Village residents, and know that the contributions by thousands of us reflect our sincere appreciation for your hard work and dedication to Hot Springs Village.
