LEXINGTON, KY — Morning Pointe of Lexington residents and associates enjoyed teaming up on some tasty treats for Arbor Youth Services. The Lexington-based agency provides services for at-risk youth. The organization offers counseling, parenting support and referrals to community resources.

The residents at the senior living community enjoyed baking and delivering the homemade cookies to the agency, meeting several appreciative teens who enjoyed making a memorable intergenerational moment with the seniors.

But these 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 as part of a yearlong community service campaign. Called “Make Your Mark,” the company-wide volunteer effort aims to give back 20,000 hours of community service in 2017.
