The residents and staff at Kendal~Crosslands Communities, are committed to social responsibility. As a progressive retirement community, we strive to be good neighbors, use responsible business practices, maintain ethical relationships, and build strong relations in the local community.
Whenever possible, we share our resources, knowledge, and facilities with the larger community. Residents provide valuable time and knowledge, and staff members share their skills with local groups through speaking engagements, workshops, and other educational programs.
Highlights Of Our Community Outreach
Each year, Kendal~Crosslands Communities donates more than 100 toys to local children in need during the holiday season. Our food drives collect thousands of pounds of food to feed hungry families. We also donate hundreds of coats, gloves, and mittens through our clothing drives.
Meals On Wheels
Kendal~Crosslands’ culinary teams prepare 20 to 30 meals a day — almost 500 per month — for the local Meals on Wheels program. It is a very important program for us, and we are honored to serve our local community in need.
For over 15 years, Kendal~Crosslands residents and staff have funded this program. It provides housekeeping services to people in their residential homes who may not be able to do their cleaning or have the resources to pay for housekeeping services.
Education and Training
Every year, more than 100 local students from nursing, rehabilitation, and vocational schools receive clinical training at Kendal~Crosslands.
Staff and residents at our 55+ communities share their knowledge, skills, and talents. They speak at numerous colleges and universities, places of worship, civic organizations, and for professional organizations on various topics in the senior industry.
Civic and Social Volunteers
Many of our staff members spend hours each week serving on local boards and providing volunteerism to the community-at-large. Residents work with nearby universities, creating fellowships through various programming.
