Mountaire Farms of North Carolina has contributed towards the Chatham County Council on Aging’s efforts to help create an area within the Northeast District Park for family caregivers and their loved ones.

“We see this as a very significant and tangible way to give back to our community,” said Sasha Duncan, Community Relations Manager for Mountaire.

The project is a collaborative effort of the Chatham County Council on Aging, Chatham County Parks and Recreation, and the Chatham County Center of N.C. Cooperative Extension.

To be named “Peaceful Pathways for Caregivers,” the area will provide a safe, accessible location for caregivers and their loved ones to rest and enjoy the outdoors. When completed, the area will include park benches along a walking trail in a wooded area, rocking chairs and a porch swing under an existing shelter, pollinator gardens and much more.

Inspirational and educational signs will be placed throughout the area to provide encouragement and emotional support for the caregivers. The goal of the project is to offer a positive and uplifting experience for caregivers and their loved ones.

“We are so grateful to Mountaire Farms for providing their support for this important initiative. This will certainly help us make our vision a reality,” said Dennis Streets, director of the Council on Aging.
