FRANKLIN, Tenn. – The generosity of Morning Pointe of Franklin residents is in full bloom, as the seniors created beautiful bouquets and delivered them to local nursing homes. As part of the “Petal Project” program, flowers — donated by West Haven Kroger – are arranged by the assisted living and memory care community to be given to those who could use a pick-me-up.
Acts of kindness are nothing new to these seniors. Their compassionate gestures inspired a year-long campaign, as Morning Pointe residents, associates and volunteers in Franklin and across the
Southeast seek to give back 20,000 hours of community service in 2017.
“Our seniors still enjoy doing for others, and that motivates each of us to do more for our community,” says Ashley Briggs, Lantern program director at Morning Pointe. “We hope that everyone could embrace the opportunity to serve others as many of our residents continue to do.”
