BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Brentwood residents and associates teamed up to give the gift of life to those in need in partnership with the American Red Cross. The assisted living and memory care community met their goal of 20 pints of blood donated by members of the greater community.

Morning Pointe partners with local healthcare organizations and nonprofits to make a difference in the lives of others. But this act of kindness is nothing new for the residents and associates, who inspired a yearlong volunteerism project called “Make Your Mark.” Morning Pointe senior campuses across the Southeast have teamed up with local organizations and partners to give back 20,000 hours of community service during 2017.
