Memorial & Honorary Gifts

There’s no better way to remember or honor a loved one than by helping others in need in our community.

Memorial Gifts:

Your loved one will be remembered and their legacy will live on through the help you will provide to someone in need. We can also mail an acknowledgement of your gift to the family of the deceased.

Honorary Gifts:

You can help someone in the name of a friend or relative. These gifts are perfect to celebrate graduations, birthdays, weddings, promotions, and retirements. We will send a card to the honoree to let you know that you were thinking of them.
