COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Collegedale at Greenbriar Cove sponsored a meal for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The staff members at the assisted living community put love into their lasagna, serving sliders and salad, baked beans, and garlic bread to everyone’s delight.

But acts of kindness are nothing new for the residents and associates. As part of the life enrichment program, 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.
