Although The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga (TN) activity assistant Emily Vincil, receptionist Cindy Britt, and residents Neal O’Neal, Barbara Stewart, Dorthea Sandin, A.B. Coleman, and Shirley Millisor may look like clowns, their commitment to helping end childhood poverty is no laughing matter. The memory care community has united in honor of Red Nose Day on May 23, a campaign that seeks to raise funds in support of children living in poverty. “Whenever we can, we try to give our residents the opportunity to remain civically engaged with the greater community,” says Lantern program director Danielle Nelson. “Our residents love their community, and they want to make it a healthier, happier, and safer place for the people living in it, including children.”
