  • Monday, November 21, 2022

Chattanooga-area Morning Pointe Senior Living communities concluded their food drive for The Samaritan Center in Ooltewah, together collecting 579 pounds of food.

Canned beans and vegetables, soup, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, pasta sauce, condiments and other nonperishable food items came in among six local Morning Pointe communities and the Morning Pointe Senior Living corporate office. The donations came in as part of The Samaritan Center’s annual food drive.

“The Samaritan Center is thankful for our partnership with Morning Pointe and other businesses in our local area that support our food drive to collect nonperishable items for our neighbors in need of food,” said Rocquel Thompson, community relations coordinator with The Samaritan Center.

“I am so pleased to see our Morning Pointe family supporting such an important organization and need in our local community,” said Greg A. Vital, Morning Pointe co-founder and president. “We have all seen food prices climbing recently, and restocking The Samaritan Center’s pantry shelves will help to feed local families. Thank you to each of our associates who bought extra groceries to share with others as we head into the holidays.”

Morning Pointe has a long history of philanthropy involving residents, families, associates and its two owners, Mr. Vital and Franklin Farrow.
