For many, the holiday season is one of their favorite times of the year. It’s a season full of joy, love and giving. Waltonwood Cotswold, a premier senior living community, looks for ways to give back throughout the year. This month, residents and team members got together at the senior living community and prepared sandwiches for people in need. They then delivered them to Urban Ministry Center, an interfaith organization dedicated to bringing the community together to end homelessness one life at a time. The residents enjoyed helping other people who live in the Charlotte area.
“Some of our residents have spent years volunteering, and we work hard to ensure they can continue to participate in activities with a purpose,” said Jaynie Segal, marketing manager of Waltonwood Cotswold. “Urban Ministry Center does amazing things for local people in need, and we loved being a part of their efforts.”
Statistics show there are over 500,000 homeless people in America. The holidays are a popular time for people to give back to the local community through volunteerism, donation drives and more. While this is the season of giving, it is also an important time to help the homeless population due to the cooler temperatures. Waltonwood Cotswold always looks for ways to give back to the local community, whether through donation drives or hours spent volunteering.
“Through this initiative, we had a wonderful opportunity to make a difference, which is very important to our team and to our residents,” said Segal. “There are so many ways to help the community, and we are thankful for everything the Urban Ministry Center does for the people in need throughout the Charlotte area.
