TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Morning Pointe of Tuscaloosa residents have made a commitment to serving others one spoonful at a time. The assisted living and memory care residents and their families have collected and donated canned goods to benefit the Community Soup Bowl.
The non-profit organization, based in Tuscaloosa, serves a hot lunch to the hungry seven days a week, Morning Pointe has formed a new partnership with the nonprofit to help bring more people in need to the table.
But this act of kindness is nothing new for the seniors and associates. Their goodwill and charity have inspired a yearlong community service campaign called “Make Your Mark.” The seniors, associates, volunteers and family members, along with partners and nonprofits, come together to help parent company Morning Pointe Senior Living reach its goal of 20,000 hours of volunteerism in 2017.
