Legacy Village prepares ‘Hope Boxes’ for disadvantaged
Legacy Village of Cleveland partnered with its sister facility, Renaissance Assisted Living of Greene County, in Stanardsville, Va., in support of Hope for Appalachia, by sending “Hope Boxes” to the poverty-stricken areas of Southeastern Kentucky and Southwestern Virginia.
Hope for Appalachia is a collaborative group of churches, businesses and individuals that deliver boxes to the children of these poverty-stricken areas. Teams based in North Carolina and Kentucky each coordinate an annual trip to these impoverished areas in Kentucky and Virginia to deliver the boxes. The Hope Boxes, about the size of a shoebox, are filled with supplies such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, warm clothes, school supplies and toys.
Team members of Legacy Village of Cleveland pitched in to put together Hope Boxes to send to the disadvantaged children in need. With the help from local Bradley County High School Freshmen Student Council, Lee University’s service club, Sigma Nu Sigma, ladies of Naomi Baptist Church and Cleveland community members, Legacy Village of Cleveland gathered over 200 Hope Boxes.
“We are so excited and humbled that we have the opportunity to partner with our sister facilities in Virginia to benefit these children in need. As we fill these boxes, we pray peace and comfort over each child that will receive a box,” said Shannon Alvey, executive director of Legacy Village of Cleveland.
Legacy Village will be on the former site of the Rolling Hills Golf Course. The facility will offer 39 assisted-living spacious suites and 32 memory care apartments in its dedicated memory care wing, The Harbor.
The assisted living wing will offer the choice of large studio, one and two-bedroom apartments. The memory care wing will offer studio, companion and one-bedroom suites.
