The holiday season is a favorite time of the year for many, but it can also be a challenging time for others. This is why Mustang Creek Estates of Burleson always looks for ways to give back this time of year. The residents and team members decided to bring a moment of happiness to the homeless women and children living at Crazy8 Ministries as they get back on their feet. Recently, the residents and team members baked cookies, which the team members then delivered to the mothers and their children. Crazy8 Ministries offers programs which give women and their children a second chance at life by providing them with a safe environment which they can call home for up to two years. With the holidays approaching, the residents of Mustang Creek Estates of Burleson were excited to bring joy to the women and children living in Crazy8 Ministries.
“One of our residents shared her great-grandmother’s recipe for cookies they used to bake when she was growing up,” said Karen Jennings, executive director of Mustang Creek Estates of Burleson. “It was a special moment, and she was happy to share it. Our residents had a blast baking and we are so happy we were able to spread a little extra joy by delivering these cookies.”
This activity is an extension of the “Cookies for Kindness” program offered by Mustang Creek Estates of Burleson all year long. The goal of the program is to brighten the days of area seniors and caregivers nominated by the public, and the community always encourages the public to nominate deserving recipients to receive cookies.
Mustang Creek Estates – whose mission is to provide seniors with high-quality residential-style assisted living and memory care at an affordable price – has additional locations in Allen, Burleson and Keller. Recently, Mustang Creek Estates opened its newest senior living community in Sachse.
