Cornerstone at Canton Makes Donation to St. John School

CANTON, MA – For Cornerstone at Canton, giving back to the local community is an important way to show their appreciation for the businesses and schools that they’ve created partnerships with throughout the years. Just recently, the Assisted Living and Compass Memory Support community wanted to give back to their friends at the St. John School in Canton, donating $2,000 to help fund in-person programs at the school. 

Cornerstone and the St. John School have a warm friendship, with students from the school visiting the community for in-person programming prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. While temporarily apart, students have shown their support for their senior neighbors by sending cards and taking part in a drive-by parade at Cornerstone. 

“Being able to work with the students at St. John School is so rewarding, and we really value their partnership,” says Cornerstone at Canton Executive Director Michael Schaus. “This donation is our way of showing how much we appreciate them.”

“St. John School is proud to have Cornerstone at Canton as a part of our school community,” says Principal Dr. Chris Flieger. “By visiting Cornerstone and spending time with residents, our middle school students are not only loving the dear neighbor, but also establishing important bonds with those in our community. There is a mutual learning between residents and students that enriches all lives and leads to friendships that span lifetimes. I am always amazed at the stories and emotions that our students bring back to SJS. These visits impact them deeply. We have missed our Cornerstone friends during the pandemic, but have found ways to be connected. We all look forward to the day when we can physically be together again.”
