Morning Pointe Senior Living recently reached 21,000 volunteer interactions toward its 25th anniversary campaign called 25,000 Touches.

Company leaders set a goal of more than 25,000 volunteer interactions in 2022 – all in the spirit of giving back to those who have provided so much love, laughter and life enrichment across those 25 years.

“As we approach the end of the year, it’s wonderful to see so many new volunteers who have come on board with us to make our residents smile,” said Amanda Baushke, Morning Pointe’s vice president of life enrichment. “Volunteers truly make a difference not just in our activities programming but also in the quality of life and feeling of being loved that our residents experience.”

To be counted, the interactions must be either with a new volunteer or tie in to Morning Pointe’s monthly 25,000 Touches theme. For example, in October, Morning Pointe buildings have been participating in a Pumpkin Palooza pumpkin design contest, and in September, they celebrated Grandparents Day.

Since the 25,000 Touches campaign kicked off in January, Morning Pointe communities have “touched” over 21,093 lives across the Southeast through various interactions. Many of the interactions are intergenerational in nature, including school groups, Scouts, grandchildren and church youth groups. Other groups and individuals contribute through musical entertainment, worship services, art, cultural programming or pet therapy.

No matter the manner of activity, volunteers play a vital role in the life of Morning Pointe communities across the Southeast. They help create memorable, purposeful days for the seniors who live there.

“These 21,000 represent more than just numbers,” said Greg A. Vital, Morning Pointe Senior Living co-founder and president. “They represent that many connections our residents have made with their greater communities, relationships they are building with others, and moments to reminisce or explore their creative or intellectual side. We are so thankful for every volunteer, whether they have been partners with our campuses for years or are just starting their ministry of touching our residents’ lives.”

The upcoming holiday season offers even more opportunities to volunteer. For all the ways you can get involved in Morning Pointe’s 25,000 Touches campaign, visit morningpointe.com/volunteer or call your local Morning Pointe community.

Founded in 1997 by Tennessee healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and Franklin Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living owns and operates 37 assisted living, personal care, and Alzheimer’s memory care communities in five southeastern states.
