Social Impact

The residents and staff at Kendal~Crosslands Communities, are committed to social responsibility in the broader community. 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

Donation Drives

For many years, Kendal~Crosslands Communities donated over 100 toys yearly to local children in need during the holiday season. Also, we support the local food bank. We also conducted food drives for many years and collected thousands of pounds 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.

Helping Hands

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.

Speaking Engagements

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 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.
