FRANKFORT, KY — The season for giving approaches, and the Morning Pointe of Frankfort senior living and Alzheimer’s memory care campus delivered the gift of compassion to local animals in need.

The seniors and associates raised more than $100 during their annual Fall Festival, with proceeds benefiting the L.I.F.E. House for Animals.

According to the animal shelter’s website, the L.I.F.E. house is a “no-kill canine and feline adoption facility with limited access.,” with a mission to “nurture, celebrate, and reinforce the human-animal bond” through adoption to permanent homes, prevent overpopulation of animals and educate the community about issues concerning animals.

Every year and year-round, the senior campus engages the Frankfort community to participate in fundraisers for key causes as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs.
