HIXSON, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Hixson residents were getting creative while showing cancer patients that they care. The assisted living and memory care community has been working on handmade cards and handcrafted knot blankets to deliver to patients at Memorial Hospital.

But acts of kindness are nothing new for the residents. 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.
