In the spirit of the back-to-school season, Morning Pointe of Knoxville partnered with Mission of Hope, a non-profit organization that has provided supplies to under-served schools throughout Tennessee and Kentucky for over 30 years. Throughout the month of August, the assisted living community collected paper, crayons, safety scissors, markers, and more—residents even made their own canvas backpacks to donate—before Mission of Hope executive director Emmette Thompson stopped by to personally pick up the donations. “We are thrilled to be able to help those in need and look forward to working with Mission of Hope for many years to come,” said Morning Pointe life enrichment director Kari Christopher.
