BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Brentwood residents turned T-shirts into toys for the Williamson County Animal Center. The seniors at the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community enjoyed visiting with the furry and four-legged friends, delivering the toys and homemade, baked healthy dog treats in exchange for cuddles and a healthy dose of pet therapy.
Meanwhile, Morning Pointe of Franklin residents welcomed guests from the Westhaven Teen Society, who came to make dog treats with the seniors at the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community.
After an afternoon of fun, the youth and the residents boarded the bus to deliver their freshly baked gifts to the shelter.
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.
