COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Collegedale at Greenbriar Cove residents enjoyed paying it forward to the associates at Discovery Point — a local daycare center that focuses on enrichment for children.

The seniors and associates at the assisted living community lovingly baked cookies to deliver to each of the Discovery Point employees, thanking them for helping to raise the next generation.

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