Morning Pointe of Knoxville (TN) residents Melba Hutcherson, Vincenta Cooper, and Faye Crisp, Mission of Hope executive director Emmette Thompson, and residents Martha Armstrong, Ruth Dunaway, Evelyn Pollard, JoAnn Swallom, Dean Buchanan, Joan Bachman, Mary Witt, Helen McKinney, and Betty Newby celebrate the end of a successful back to school drive. In total, the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community’s residents and their families collected a large box of new backpacks and school supplies and made a donation of over 200 dollars to Mission of Hope that will provide school supplies for 20 children. “The residents got such a feeling of accomplishment, knowing that their donations would help disadvantaged children succeed in school,” says Morning Pointe life enrichment director Pat Anderson.
Mission of Hope serves 28 elementary schools and 13 high schools in some of the poorest economic communities in southeast Kentucky and northeast Tennessee. For more information, visit www.missinofhope.org.
