A Culture of Generosity at Legacy Senior Living
Legacy Senior Living is committed to being an active member of the local communities that we serve. We work hard to be more than just a responsible corporate citizen -- but also a good neighbor and a vested contributor.
In addition to regularly participating in community-wide events, our local campus administrators actively serve as knowledgeable resources on senior living and retirement issues that affect the communities we serve.
Legacy Senior Living participates in national and local Alzheimer’s Association events to support Alzheimer’s research. In 2014, individual campuses raised more than $30,000 with Walk To End Alzheimer’s teams and special events, like the Charlie Hyde Memorial Golf Tournament, sponsored by our Renaissance Marquis campus in Rome, Ga.
Legacy Senior Living is an annual sponsor of national Alzheimer's fundraising programs, including Fifty Plus Racing (see photo above), a team of IMSA road race drivers that raise awareness and funds for research through their Highway to Help campaign.
Legacy Senior Living is especially proud to serve our veterans, including those from the Greatest Generation, who helped to build the country we live in today. Legacy Senior Living routinely holds educational seminars to help veterans and their families better understand the benefits available to them due to their service to our country.
Many of our campuses have special areas of recognition to honor residents who served in the military, and Veteran’s Day is one of the most anticipated days of the year for our administrative and support teams.
We are, without a doubt, passionate about supporting memory care and veteran related causes, but we are equally as committed to supporting the communities we serve. Our corporate office annually adopts Senior Angels through the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, and provides monthly support to a local Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) group, an organization focused on helping to prepare the next generation of leaders.
We feel extremely blessed to be working in our area of expertise, and our “First Fruits” program allows each campus to begin the year by donating to an organization, program or nonprofit of their choice.
Our local campuses also look for opportunities to engage with and support women’s and homeless shelters, children’s homes or any organization serving at-risk members of our community.
Yes, we want to be responsible corporate citizens and good neighbors, but we also feel a strong calling to be good stewards of the blessings we have received.
Hope for Appalachia
Legacy Senior Living and two of its facilities, Renaissance Assisted Living and the Harbor at Renaissance of Greene County in Virginia, partnered with Hope for Appalachia to help support this group of churches, businesses and individuals. Hope for Appalachia focuses on delivering Hope boxes to children in the poverty-stricken areas of eastern Kentucky.
A group from Hope for Appalachia visits the children of Eastern Kentucky annually. By March, 2016, Hope for Appalachia expects to fill 3,280 boxes filled with hope and love and will deliver them to seven schools in Harlan and Perry counties, Kentucky.
Liesa Dodson, Marketing Director of Renaissance and the Harbor leads the Hope for Appalachia Virginia team. Liesa was instrumental in organizing a team of residents to pack the Hope Boxes to deliver to some of the poorest counties in America.
Renaissance and The Harbor sit at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountain, where these poverty stricken areas exist in Kentucky. Principals and teachers have shared that these children have a hopeless environment and families are struggling to find and provide basic necessities. We want to help support Hope for Appalachia as they give these children hope by visiting with them and providing school supplies, toothbrushes and toothpaste, small toys and food.
Legacy Senior Living believes in the importance of giving back to our local communities. Legacy strives to serve their local communities and enjoys developing relationships with local residents. We are very thankful to be involved with such great organizations and appreciate the opportunity to partner with them.
