The residents of The Buckingham an SQLC retirement community have a passion for serving others, a gift they are particularly excited to share during the holiday season. As residents at the senior living community reflect on their blessings over the past year, they are coming together to collect a number of donations and gifts for those in need in the local community. Currently, they are hard at work collecting gently worn coats, sweaters, scarves, hats, mittens, gloves and shoes from employees, residents, and family members for OneWarmCoat that will be donated to shelters and community centers in the Greater Houston area and other communities across the United States. The community also put up two Christmas Angel Trees with a total of 20 angel tags from the Salvation Army. Additionally, The Buckingham team members adopted a family through Chapelwood United Methodist Church to provide Christmas gifts for a local family.
"We're honored to come together as a community and play a role in helping families and children during the holiday season," said Julie Fenske, executive director of The Buckingham. "We are grateful to have residents and team members who are so passionate about making our world a better place, and it's truly a joy to see the impact they are making on the lives of others. We hope that by getting involved in so many ways, we can show our community that giving back to those who need it the most is fun and worthwhile."
Collecting the donations and gifts supports the Masterpiece Living® philosophy that is infused throughout the entire community. The lifestyle encourages continual learning and promotes a healthy outlook in all regards physical, intellectual, social and spiritual. Residents of The Buckingham are dedicated to lending a helping hand not just around the holidays, but also all year long.
