FRANKFORT, KY — In celebration of National Librarian’s Week, the residents at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Frankfort, put together special goodie bags for the librarians at Bondurant Middle School, Bridgeport Elementary School and Western Hills High School.

The seniors and associates at the memory care community ordered special tote bags, filling them with cookies and fun gifts. The intent — to thank them for making an impact in the lives of local students.

Since the beginning of the year, Morning Pointe’s senior living and memory care communities across the Southeast have been paying it forward. From pet treats to potted plants, the goodwill of the seniors and associates inspired the “Make Your Mark” campaign — a yearlong project to give back 20,000 of community service in 2017. Already, they have given back 10,000 hours of volunteerism with no signs of slowing down.
