"Crime against nursing home residents happens more than we'd like to think," said ViewPoint Bank Community Reinvestment Officer Kim Weaver-McDonald. "We're thrilled to sponsor a program that will provide a safe, secure living environment for residents and staff."
The SHCPF and ViewPoint Bank will hold a dedication ceremony at the center Wednesday, December 12 at 10 a.m. at 8383 Meadows Road, Dallas, TX 75231.
