BrightStar Care® of Cabarrus/N. Mecklenburg, an in-home care and medical staffing franchise, was recognized by Cabarrus County Active Living and Parks for its outstanding commitment to volunteering with local senior citizens.
Citing the local home care company’s dedication to consistently going above and beyond the call of duty, seniors on the Cabarrus County Active Living and Parks Advisory Board commended BrightStar Care of Cabarrus/N. Mecklenburg’s Marketing Director, Michelle McDonald, for her exceptional leadership and compassion.
“Michelle is a true role model for how companies and their employees can make a real difference enriching the lives of seniors,” says Pamela Sullivan, Active Living Program Director of Cabarrus County Active Living and Parks. “A genuine friend to many, she works hard and spends countless volunteer hours each week arranging activities and coming up with wonderful ideas, for instance the monthly Veteran’s breakfast, musical bingo, and BrightStar birthday bash to help keep our seniors as active and engaged as possible.
“She always takes the time to sit down and chat with our seniors to see how they’re doing and what she can do for them. Always willing to help beyond what is expected of her, she and BrightStar Care of Cabarrus/N. Mecklenburg have become a beacon to many and a testament to the positive results that occur when companies and their employees give back to their communities through volunteering.”
Under Michelle’s leadership, BrightStar Care of Cabarrus/N. Mecklenburg donates time, talent and resources to a majority of the big events held throughout the year, along with many regularly scheduled programs at the Cabarrus County Active and Parks Senior Centers.
