Morning Pointe residents reach children in need
The season for giving approaches, and Morning Pointe of Danville residents and associates have been working all year long to collect items to bring Christmas cheer to local children.
The seniors at the personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care community hosted a “packing party,” filling more than 50 shoe boxes for Operations Christmas Child — an initiative that delivers Christmas gifts to underserved populations around the world.
“I feel as though this project not only will touch the lives of children around the world but also touched myself and also the residents who packed the boxes,” says Nicole Walton, life enrichment director at Morning Pointe.
But this act of kindness is nothing new for the senior living community, which is celebrating a year of community service through the Make Your Mark campaign. In honor of parent company Morning Pointe Senior Living’s 20th anniversary, residents, associates and community partners have teamed up to give back 20,000 volunteer hours in 2017. Already near doubling that goal, the seniors still show no signs of slowing down with activities planned through the end of the year and the next.
