I wish I could introduce all of you to our friend Mildred. She was a bright spirit, always with a smile. Mildred was a client, as well as a devoted volunteer who was always willing to help New Horizons in any way we needed. While on occasion she might make a monetary donation, she was not a woman of financial wealth, although she was rich in good friends and spent much of her time doing things for others.
In the past year, Mildred passed from this world. While we were all deeply saddened by this loss, she left us something to remember her by. When Mildred passed, we found that she had remembered New Horizons Disability Empowerment Center in her estate plan and left a portion of her estate to New Horizons and another local charity.
What a wonderful way to make an impact that lasts for generations. Again, Mildred was not wealthy by any account, however once her estate is settled, and the monies come to NHDEC, we plan to create a special fund in her honor. A memorial fund that will continue to help others in her name, for many years. I would like to hold Mildred up as an example of how a little forethought can make a BIG difference. Just consider the MANY ways you can give your final gift to the world. Please consider having an estate plan that would include New Horizons DisAbility Empowerment Center here in Prescott Valley, as a recipient. If you have questions, please give me a call at New Horizons and I will personally talk you through a couple options.
