Gloria and Alvin Ross

 













Alvin and Gloria Ross

Alvin Ross’ story is an extraordinary one. A World War II radio operator, he was shot down over occupied France and hidden by farmers. He escaped to Spain by walking over the Pyrenees Mountains in the dead of winter in 1943.

Alvin returned to his hometown of Elberon, New Jersey with
little more than flight pay in his pocket. Hard work and a brilliant business mind helped him turn a small prefabricated garage business into Plymouth 
Modular Homes. Alvin and Gloria raised their four
children in a home just like those he built for his clients and neighbors.

Gloria and Alvin have chosen to continue their story by creating the Alvin and Gloria Ross Community Care Fund. Their Fund will provide support and training for those special caregivers who improve the lives of individuals suffering from dementia.

With this gift, Alvin and Gloria continue a lifetime of giving … For Good. For Ever.
