TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Morning Pointe of Tuscaloosa residents packed goody bags for a great cause through its partnership with the Good Samaritan Clinic.
The assisted living and Alzheimer's memory care community worked hand in hand with the nonprofit organization on the Homeless Connect Project -- an event that brings the Tuscaloosa community together to bring vital healthcare services to those in need.
But this act of kindness is nothing new for the seniors, who are paying it forward in a big way. In honor of parent company Morning Pointe Senior Living's 20th anniversary, Morning Pointe communities across the Southeast are giving back 20,000 of community service in 2017. Already surpassing their goal, the seniors are showing no signs of slowing down, as they continue their campaign of compassion.
