The Princeton Senior Living: Enhancing Our Community with Acts of Service

Category: Culture & Traditions

Author: Kellie Duran, Resident Services Director

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a federal holiday in the United States, observed on the third Monday of January to honor the civil rights leader. This American civil rights activist played a key role in advocating for racial equality and justice through nonviolent means. Therefore, people remember Dr. King’s contributions on this day and frequently engage in community service to honor his legacy.

Studies have demonstrated that volunteerism offers numerous benefits, such as:

  • boosting self-confidence
  • offering a sense of purpose
  • promoting physical activity

Moreover, it has a proven track record of reducing stress, alleviating anxiety, combating isolation, and alleviating depression.

Contributing to the Local Area

At The Princeton Senior Living, many of our residents have spent time volunteering or serving others. To help older adults continue to participate in all that is important to them and to do our part in continuing Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy, our community participates in Arrow Senior Living’s Acts of Service initiatives throughout the year. In January, we plan to focus on one specific community service project every month. Our aging adults take pride in these efforts because the work is meaningful and creates lasting relationships with those in their long-term communities. Some positive feedback we have received from residents on Acts of Service in the past is they enjoy feeling a sense of purpose and involvement in the Lee’s Summit community.

In past years, we’ve partnered with local food banks, animal shelters, hospitals, and more. As we head into the new year, we’re excited for the opportunity to continue partnering with our local community to serve others purposefully.

A few of the partnerships we have planned for 2024 include:

  • Community clean-up
  • Landscaping around Lee’s Summit during April
  • National Volunteer Month
  • Food Drive for Abundant Life Church in May

Also, we will partner with Sunset Valley Church in August for backpacks for kids and teacher baskets through the Chamber of Commerce.
