Legacy Senior Living gives back through Hope For Appalachia

(CLEVELAND, TN) - Residents at Legacy Village of Cleveland along with members of Sigma Nu from Lee University helped to package a total of 410 boxes of school supplies and personal hygiene items for disadvantaged children in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky.

The care package items were donated by the Legacy Senior Living Support Center and were given to Hope for Appalachia Virginia, Inc., a non-profit organization that brings basic necessities to children in some of the poorest areas in the Appalachian Mountains. Each box was marked for a boy or girl in the second grade.

“This annual project brings our residents, team members and the community together with a purpose and joy in being able to give back to children,” said Bryan Cook, President and COO of Legacy Senior Living. “We are proud to be a corporate partner with Hope For Appalachia.”

Legacy Senior Living supports Hope for Appalachia each year in gathering supplies and packaging the boxes for the children as a community outreach project. “Our mission as Legacy Senior Living is to be an example of leadership and integrity,” said Barry Ray, CEO of Legacy Senior Living. “We strive to reach this goal every day with our residents and our teams, but we also do so as caring members of our community and nation. It’s who we are as a Legacy Senior Living community.”

“Hope for Appalachia is an amazing ministry,” said Liesa Dodson, Cofounder, Hope for Appalachia Virginia Inc. “Interacting with the children by talking and praying with them, or even playing games, is so rewarding, but the real benefit is to the children. The smiles on their faces when they receive their Hope Box and put on a new pair of socks or get a new toothbrush are priceless.”
