CALHOUN, Ga. — Morning Pointe of Calhoun residents baked cookies for a cause during their bake sale to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community pitched a tent at the local Walmart, raising more than $300 for the nonprofit with special thanks to partners Assured Hospice, Gordon Home Health and Amedisys for the support.

But acts of kindness are nothing new for the residents and associates. As part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs, Morning Pointe is partnering with local organizations to pay it forward, and giving residents the opportunity to put their lifelong talents and crafts to use for the greater good.

The yearlong community service campaign, called “Make Your Mark,” is a company-wide volunteer effort to give back 20,000 hours of community service in 2017.
